Shopping by Appointment
For this sale, all shoppers must schedule an appointment in advance. Each individual must be registered. Shopping appointments will be 50 minutes long. Space is limited; only 20 shoppers will be allowed during each shopping period to allow for safe social distancing.
When you arrive at the outdoor tent to shop, a Book Sale volunteer will greet you at the entrance and verify your name and appointment. This allows us to keep everyone safely socially-distanced while enjoying shopping the book sale.
Shoppers will be allowed to browse and make purchases during their selected time only. At the end of the shopping period, everyone must check out and exit the tent. If you prefer a longer shopping period, please register for an additional shopping appointment.
All shoppers must wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth at all times and observe social distancing. Any shoppers who do not comply with these library protocols may be asked to leave. If you are feeling unwell, have a fever, or are exhibiting any other symptoms of illness, please stay home.
Hand sanitizer will be available for all shoppers.
Please bring your own bags or boxes for shopping; Pequot Library will not be able to provide bags or boxes for purchases. Please refrain from leaving books or other property unattended at any time.
Shoppers are asked to evaluate items and decide whether or not to purchase them at the table where they are displayed. If you reject an item, please return it to the place it was displayed.
