Weller Book Works

607 Trolley Square, Salt Lake City, UT 84102 Directions

From Our Editors

A lifelong bookworm, Tony Weller has been working at Weller Book Works since the age of 10, though the bookstore’s story begins well before that. In 1929, Gustav and Margaret Weller—two German immigrants—opened Zion’s Bookstore, the first version of what would evolve into Weller Book Works. After three generations, countless moves, and one building fire that nearly incinerated the early store’s inventory, Weller Book Works is thriving at a new location in Trolley Square under the management of Tony and Catherine Weller.

Though he has had his hand in all facets of the store, Tony mainly oversees the rare-books department, where he acquires estates, performs appraisals, and hunts for the elusive first edition of The Great Gatsby bound in Michael Jordan rookie cards. At Weller Book Works’ massive location, stacks of books line the walls and floors holding titles in genres that range from fiction and reference books to Mormon books and science fiction. The store also holds special events, such as book signings from authors such as Mormon author Joanna Brooks.
