Books for Teachers

Resources for Educators

The Renée B. Fisher Foundation’s Books for Teachers program has been active at Pequot Library for many years. The foundation’s program started with a simple idea: provide an abundance of books of all types and subjects to children whose access to books may be limited. What better place to find a rich resource of books at affordable prices than a library book sale? What better way to get the books into student hands than through their teachers?



Are you a teacher at a public school in Bridgeport or New Haven? Would you like to add some good books to your classroom library?

Teachers will be selected on a first come, first served basis to receive a $125 award voucher for free books and media at Pequot Library’s Summer Book Sale in Southport, CT. Thousands of new and gently used books and recordings for all ages will be for sale in more than 60 categories, including fiction, non-fiction, classics, poetry, art, history, science, and more.

To apply for the $125 award voucher for free classroom books, please submit the form below.
