Our beloved tree has moved from Dragonwings to the Waupaca Public Library Youth Dept. (That was a BIG job!!!) We hear that visitors to the library are excited to find it in another of their favorite places. Meanwhile, we moved into The Bookcellar – that fabulous store filled to overflowing with books and music. We are located at 110 S. Main St. right across from the library and next door to Little Fat Gretchen’s cafe. In fact there is a door between the bookstore and cafe, so, next time you come in, you can have lunch, browse our new books, games and puzzles, wander through the used books and music, and then step back into LFG’s for homemade pie. It’s a book-lovers’ paradise here. See you soon!

LOOKING FOR E-BOOKS? We sell e-books through Kobo – the largest e-book retailer in the world! They have great deals, too. If you use this Dragonwings Kobo link: CLICK HERE TO SEARCH, BROWSE AND PURCHASE E-BOOKS your purchase will help support Dragonwings. Thanks!

Testimonials

What an incredible treasure Waupaca has. Dragonwings is an such an asset to the children, families, schools, libraries and community in central Wisconsin. In the modest traveling I have don in the US and abroad, I can say that it is very rare to find a shop so authentic and friendly focused only on the children of a small town.
