Glen Ellyn is a friendly and leafy village in the western suburbs of Chicago. The Bookstore is located in the heart of the beautiful historic downtown area.

The Bookstore is located on the main north-and-south street of downtown Glen Ellyn, at 475 N. Main Street. We are on the east side of Main Street on the north side of the railroad tracks. Main Street is mostly a two-way street, but for the block we are on, it is a one-way street in the southerly direction between Pennsylvania & Crescent Boulevards. If you are coming up Main Street from the south, you will need to turn right on Crescent immediately after you cross the tracks, then take the next three left turns until you are back on Main Street.

There is limited on-street parking directly in front of the store. Should those spots all be full, we recommend that you proceed to the Crescent Boulevard parking lot, by making a right hand turn from Main Street to Crescent Boulevard. The parking lot is on the south side of the street. Parking meters are available for 3 or 6 hours.

From Chicago, Glen Ellyn is on the Metra Union Pacific West Line. The Bookstore is one block west and one half block north of the train station in Glen Ellyn. If you are driving from Chicago, take the Eisenhower West (I-290) to Roosevelt Road (west) to Main Street in Glen Ellyn. Turn right and go north into town. 

 If you're in a hurry and parking is full, just call us from your cellphone, tell us what you need, and we will try to provide carhop service if we're not too busy!
