Important facts to know about the Pequot Library Summer Book Sale:
1. Unlike sales at other libraries, this one is critical for the operations of Pequot Library, given that the town provides only a third of its operating budget.
2. Pequot Library is a jewel in the Fairfield community for its traditional library services and its vibrant cultural, music, and arts programs.
3. Because of the long-time community support, this sale is the largest in the region offering the most extensive selection of books, records, etc.
4. Pequot’s offerings of “specials” is consistently the finest.
5. “Books for Teachers” program, thanks to generous funding from the Reneé B. Fisher Foundation, provides book vouchers to under-served schools and teachers in Bridgeport and New Haven, CT.

Thank you to our generous sponsors!
