Hartfield is Monticello's Independent Bookstore

Hartfield Book Co. is located on the historic Courthouse Square in downtown Monticello, Illinois.
We carry a diverse selection of new books for all ages and interests, as well as unique and bookish gift items. Just look for the yellow door!


Here’s what you need to know… We're working hard to make the store safe for you and for our booksellers.

  • Face mask required — We're asking everyone who enters the store (customers and employees) to wear a face mask. ​
  • Safe distancing — Please keep six feet between you and others while browsing. ​
  • Maximum occupancy — In order to make distanced browsing possible, we'll ask that only 4 customers be in the store at the same time. This is in addition to bookstore staff. We're adding outdoor seating in front of the store to make waiting more comfortable.

Of course, you can also shop from the comfort of your home anytime! We are offering free local delivery, free in-store and curbside pickup, and free shipping on orders of $50 or more.

Thank you so much for your patience, understanding and support during these challenging times!
