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!

YES, WE ARE OPEN!

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

  • Face mask still required — We're asking everyone who enters the store (customers and employees) to continue wearing a face mask for now. We want all of our customers, including the littlest bookworms, to feel safe and comfortable while enjoying the bookstore!
  • Safe distancing — We're still encouraging safe distancing while browsing.
  • Maximum occupance — Illinois' Bridge Phase limits retail shops to 60% occupancy. 

Of course, you can also shop mask-free from the comfort of your home anytime! We are still offering in-store and curbside pickup, plus free delivery in Monticello.
