The Bookworm has been a part of the Elkhart community for over 40 years.

In June 2017, The Bookworm made a big (but not very far) move into Downtown Elkhart.  Three Preciado sisters co-own at the new location. The beautiful new store has 2 levels of custom made shelves throughout, including floor to ceiling bookshelves in both the ground level and the basement.  The Bookworm sells new & used books. The Bookworm accepts used books in good condition for trade.  Please bare with us as we continue to make this transition into downtown and finish unpacking and shelving.   Come see the new store!
