*NOTICE: Temporary Pause Till March 1, 2020*
Our shelves are full and we need to pause in accepting new work. Please understand: We love and appreciate our customers, but we need to concentrate on finishing the work that’s in line before we receive more books and Bibles. If you have already contacted us about your project and we’ve okayed it, by all means, you can send it. Gift certificates can still be redeemed. But we just need some time to clear some space here. Thanks for understanding!
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.

SHIPPING US A BOOK OR BIBLE
If you have a Bible that needs rebinding, and your already know what you’d like to do.
Or, if you have something other than a Bible to send us, and you’d like to just get started …
When your book or Bible arrives, we’ll send you an official estimate to make sure we’re all on the same page.
When you’ve okay’d the estimate, we’ll put the project on the schedule.
After we have received your book or Bible and you have agreed to a final price on your project with an official estimate, you can pay whenever you’re ready. Unless you’ve chosen a special-order leather, payment is usually due upon completion.
