Our Story

Dragon Tale Books continues the decades-long tradition of an independent bookstore in Menomonie, Wisconsin. Locally owned and operated by Ann Vogl, a former librarian and accountant, she’s long dreamed of running a bookstore. In 2022, her dream came true when she purchased the inventory and furnishings of Bookends On Main.

Dragon Tale Books’ mission is to serve lifelong readers, support local creatives, provide community learning opportunities, and make the world a better place by being inclusive and respectful of the world around us in our book selections and events, all within an engaging and whimsical environment.

We hope you’ll join us for our many hosted events, art exhibits, and family activities – or just stop in to find a great book from our vast collection of new and used books, which has been curated for all ages and interests.
