The Book Table bookstore at 1045 Lake St. in Oak Park is about to get a little bit bigger with the help of some resident bookworms. 

The beloved business launched an online fundraiser in early April with the goal of raising $50,000 to expand to an adjacent storefront. The online fundraiser generated just over the amount needed.

Book Table co-owner Jason Smith said in a telephone interview that he is grateful to the community for all its support. 

"It's been an amazing 15 years so far here in Oak Park. The customers have been great to us since day one," he said.

He said work already has begun on the expansion, which is expected to be completed sometime in July.
