Holiday Children's Book Drive!  

Now more than ever, kids need books to help them them identify emotions, understand social interactions, and build empathy for others in a fun and positive way. Join us in helping kids get the books they need!

Sponsored by First Lady Kathy Evers and the Wisconsin Executive Residence Foundation in partnership with Mystery to Me and the Supporting Families Together Association, you can choose from one (or more) of the books listed here, or simply choose one of your favorites. All book donations will be distributed to non-profit organizations throughout Wisconsin. If you'd like us to choose the books, we're happy to accept a donation for any amount on behalf of the book drive. If that's what you'd prefer, give us a call or drop off a donation with us when you visit. 

Give or Receive a Book Subscription Package! It's simple... click here to review subscription options. Need it tweaked a bit for that special someone? Give us a call and we'll see what kind of shenanigans we can manage!

Shop online here or at Bookshop!

Books that are on our shelves can be purchased online. The search feature above "shop for books" should help. If you can't find what you're looking for, feel free to send an email or give us a call during our in-store hours. 

Bookshop is a way to shop online while supporting indies! If you enter Bookshop through Mystery to Me's "portal," we get a portion of the order total. In a cost/benefit reality, we do benefit by having you order directly through Bookshop. The books never come to the store and we save on shipping and handling. Your books will be delivered to you in the mail in a few days' time, you don't even have to leave your house, and you support local business! 

Shop for audiobooks!

Similar to Bookshop, when you purchase audiobooks from Libro.fm, a portion of the sale goes right to Mystery to Me! Right now, in a heroic effort to keep indies like us up and running, 100% of each new membership comes comes right to us.


A number of you have asked what you can do to help. You can donate at this link, and by clicking the "Donate!" header.
