Follow Route 16 West for 4.7 miles. Just past the LARGE brick & glass Wellesley Free Library on your left you’ll come to a stoplight (5-way intersection) in the town of Wellesley; go straight (not left) continuing onto Route 135W, which is also known as Central Street in Wellesley.
(NB: There’s a SMALL stone Wellesley Library building part way along Route 16 – go past that one!)
Wellesley Books is .2 miles after the intersection on the left, just past The Gap and the tall, old-fashioned clock, on the last block of stores.
(NB: If you go past a stoplight or an entrance to Wellesley College, you’ve gone too far.)
If you turn left onto the street just before that clock, our parking lot is on your right. Parking is free in this lot behind our building. There is also metered parking on the streets.
