We are currently experiencing health issues among our workers and staff, some Covid-related. We are sorry for delays and are doing our best, but we are working with skeleton crews right now, and we will let you know when your book or Bible is completed and ready to ship, to the best of our ability.
Please understand, answers to your emails and completion times for your projects will probably be delayed, even if we formerly told you that Christmas delivery might be a possibility. If you sent a box and haven’t heard from us, but you followed the tracking and it says we picked it up, then yes, we picked it up, but haven’t been able to process it into our system yet. Please be patient.
Keep in mind, if you call our business line, you will probably get a voice mail greeting, and we may not be able to return your call. For special binding requests, it’s probably best not to ask right now.
It would be best if you check out our website first and see if that will answer your other questions. The navigation links at the top of this page are a good place to start. The How to Order page answers many pricing questions, and How Much Does It Cost? will tell you basic information about various kinds of repairs and restorations.
WELCOME TO LEONARD’S BOOKS
Leonard E. Haley first opened Leonard’s Antiques & Used Furniture back in 1972 in a familiar storefront in Lafayette, Indiana. After he passed away in 1988, his son Eric continued the family business, gradually adding his favorite stock — books — and changing the name to “Leonard’s Antiques & Books.”
Leonard’s was the first antiques store in the Lafayette area to go online, in 1996. Five years later, in 2001, the landmark store was closed, and Eric moved his collection of rare, out-of-print, and quality used books and magazines to a new location in Carroll County, Indiana–right next to our house in the old Burrows fire station. The name was changed to “Leonard’s Books” to reflect our new focus on both book sales and bookbinding. Today, the vast majority of our business is book and Bible rebinding.
