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, 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 just about anything!
It's all too much to describe here, so please stop in for a visit.

Our staff has been fully vaccinated,
but in keeping with the latest CDC recommendations,
we encourage ALL patrons to wear masks, regardless of vaccination status.

Please DON’T come into the store if you are feeling sick!

We are still happy to offer contact-free vestibule pickup, if you prefer!

Sorry, events continue to be postponed indefinitely.

We have fresh coffee or tea, lots of comfy chairs, and a multitude of hidden delights waiting for you!

We are open: Monday through Friday: 10 a.m to 6 p.m.
                          Saturday: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
                          Sunday: intermittently (during the chilly months, we are often here, but sometimes not)

Gift Certificates are available in any denomination.  Live out of town?  For one thin dollar, we'll take your order over the phone and mail the gift certificate to your recipient!
