Harvey’s Tales

We have made the difficult decision to close Harvey’s Tales effective Tuesday, March 17th thru March 31st in response to the request for social distancing and the White House Task Force suggestion that gatherings be no more than 10 people. As this situation is unprecedented, we will communicate changes as needed. The health and safety of our employees and customers is our top priority, so we want to do our part to keep them and the community safe.

While we don’t have an on-line presence for ordering books, we will be announcing hours the store will be staffed so that we can provide books, games and puzzles via credit card payments and curb side delivery, as well as other ways you can support the store during this period of closure. We know how important books and diversions are at this time! Please watch our social media outlets and our website for those details to come soon! We are extremely thankful to all of you who came out this past weekend to support our store, and others in Geneva! We appreciate your support and understanding and can’t wait to see the store filled with your smiling faces again soon!

Ways to Continue to Support Harvey's Tales

Harvey's Tales - Geneva's Bookshop

Our vision for Harvey’s Tales is to create a welcoming environment that inspires the community to come together to learn, explore, escape and relax through books and other diversions.

Harvey's Tales thanks their wonderful customers for participating in the Christmas Cheer book donation program and the Anderson Animal Shelter wish tree. Your generosity resulted in the donation of over 100 books delivered to children in Kane County on Christmas Day and you granted over 20 wishes to Anderson Animal Shelter from our wish tree! We are proud to be part of a community that cares!

Special Orders

Can’t find a book you’re looking for? Let one of our booksellers know and we can order it! If available from our distributor we can usually have it in a few days. We’ll call when the book comes in and hold it for you until you can get to the store. Payment is made when you pick up the book.

Shelf Talkers

Are you passionate about a book and think everyone should read it? If so, provide at least 3 – 5 sentences describing the book and/or why you like it and we’ll turn it into a shelf talker! Just ask one of our booksellers for the form to fill out, or you can email us with the title, author and your description. Please include your name as we’ll include it on the shelf talker. If you provide a shelf talker, you will get a coupon from us for 10% off of one item!
