Established in 1874 and purchased by Carl Janke after his U.S. Army discharge from World War I in 1919, Janke Book Store is recognized as a historical institution in Wausau. Janke Book Store has held true to the adage of founder Janke that an independent bookstore's success is founded on providing far more than books to its customers. From the days of horse and buggy to today's fast-paced, computerized generation, Janke Book Store offers a wide selection of products and services featured, along with a comprehensive slideshow, on our PRODUCTS page, to its valued customers. 

Janke Book Store also carries a largely exclusive line of LOCAL HISTORY BOOKS which provide fascinating reading!
