Weller's 90th anniversary celebration!

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.

We are having a birthday celebration for Weller Book Works as we turn 90, and we want you to join us!
