About Weller Book Works

Thank you for visiting us online. 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, but we re-branded in the mid-2000s to reflect our future. We are in our third generation of operations, owned and managed by Tony and Catherine Weller. Our staff includes three generations of Wellers and a remarkable team of book lovers. Our store sells new, used, and rare books in a space built to surprise and delight you. You'll find us in the south end of Trolley Square, next to 600 South.

With two floors and two entrances, there is no wrong way to visit Weller Book Works. The Rare Book Department is upstairs, and we have new & used books on the first floor. Both floors are accessible by a stairwell inside our store, or by the escalator just outside our doors. Trolley Square also has a wheelchair-accessible service elevator.


We’re delighted to answer your questions and help you select just the right book, whether for a gift, an addition to your collection, or for your personal perfect read.
