Welcome to The Village Booksmith, south-central Wisconsin's premier source for quality new and used books, including rare, out-of-print, and hard-to-find titles. 

We feature extensive collections of popular fiction, mysteries, and science fiction, along with shelves dedicated to regional and world history, art, nature, religion, cooking, poetry, pets, travel, bullfighting, donkeys, and much, much more!  Visit the stage to browse our children's books, which range from board books for toddlers to antiques from decades past.  We can also special-order almost any new title and track down obscure ones.

Beautiful calendars, cards, journals, and other delights are also sprinkled throughout the shop, along with lots of comfy chairs and nooks to get lost in.   It's all too much to describe here, so please stop in for a visit.

As the cultural center of downtown Baraboo, we also offer frequent events--almost always free!  
Poetry?  Quiz Night?  Bloomsday? Toast of the Town?  Surrealist Night?  Music?
