90th Thanks

Weller Book Works was founded as Zion Bookstore nearly 90 years ago. Over the years we’ve been known as Sam Weller’s Books and Sam Weller’s Zion Bookstore. We are in our third generation of operations, owned and managed by Tony and Catherine Weller. Our staff includes four generations of Wellers and a remarkable team of book lovers. Our bookstore sells new, used and rare books in a space built to surprise and delight you in historic Trolley Square.

We’re happy to answer your questions and help you select just the right book.

An anniversary party requires thoughtful planning, teamwork, and vision. We would like to thank those who brought the party together.

Acting as bartender for the event was Lane Richins, aided by Tiff Cline. Their non-stop motion and service was documented in blurry action shots.

Lila Ann Weller and Vivian Garcia plated, served, and replenished the buffet. Vivian is shown here setting out fresh hors d'oevres.

Many thanks to our party helpers:

  • Tiff Cline
  • Vivian Garcia
  • Natalie Keezer
  • Reid Rouse
  • Lila Ann Weller


Thanks go to our planning committee:

  • Emma Fox
