About Us


Mummphy’s Book Nook is an independent, family-run bookstore in the Concord Mall in Elkhart, Indiana. Owned and operated by Jon Mumford, Mummphy’s is also supported by his wife and their four children.

Mummphy’s was founded in 1997 and has operated in various venues in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin and Ohio. Mummphy’s has been located at Shipshewana, Indiana at the Trading Place of America since 2000 and at its most successful venture at the Concord Mall since 2010. Over the past 20 years two things have been consistent: Mummphy’s pays attention to their unique customers and we understand the relationships they have with their books!

Mummphy’s, a unique bookstore, takes great care when deciding what books and titles end up on our shelves. We offer a wide variety of titles, while including those timeless treasures that are often times hard to find. Don’t see something you want? Not to worry, Mummphy’s will be happy to order your book with an option to have it delivered right to your front door at no extra charge! There is always something for everyone here at Mummphy’s.

At Mummphy’s, we offer educational opportunities for children, including a summer reading program and storytelling for the little ones. For the adults, you may find a monthly book club and various special programs including sign language, historical events, local author showcasing, among other exciting events. We at Mummphy’s support the local community with book donations, food donations, and offer our customers a creative way to recycle their unwanted books!

Mummphy’s,  a 2011 Independent Business Awards finalist, supports small and independent businesses and is proud to be a member of the Independent We Stand Organization.  By shopping small, Mummphy’s believes that you can help your local community become a more vibrant and stronger place!
