Independent Bookstore Day is a one-day national party that takes place at indie bookstores on the last Saturday in April.  Every store is unique and independent, and every party is different.

Rare Books at Weller Book Works

Rare and lovely gifts await you at Weller Book WorksIf you are enamoured with rare and lovely books, if the sight of marbled endsheets makes you swoon, if the feel of onionskin paper gives you shivers, you ought to visit our Rare Book department where you will find enlightened conversation with your fellow bibliophiles and gentle bibliomanes.

Our rare book listings aren't currently available on this website, but you can find them on, Alibris, and ABEbooks.

Of course, we would always love to see you in person. Our Collectors' Book Salons are held the final Friday of every month, January through October. Socializing, light refreshments, and an invited speaker comprise these casual but heady events. Historic, formal, or whimsical attire is encouraged but not required. A love of books is. Join us.
