Mid.-winter Booksale at Pequot Library!

Pequot Library’s Mid-Winter Book Sale just got a little bigger. The sale, Saturday, January 18 – Sunday, January 19, 2014, runs from 9:00am – 5:00pm daily. Held in Pequot Library’s Auditorium/Concert Hall with free admission, the sale is open to the public. All Sale proceeds help fund Pequot Library’s over 375 annual programs and events for all ages.


Pequot’s annual Mid-Winter Book Sale is the little sister of Pequot Library’s nationally known Summer Book Sale, which is considered, “The best book sale in New England.” The Mid-Winter Sale is smaller but more intimate with many treasures and bargains to be had, including the two new categories added, Cookbooks and Classics.

When asked why, two long-time book sale volunteers responded, “Cookbooks do well and people want different categories. We listen to the public’s requests; there have been requests for cookbooks at the Mid-Winter Book Sale, plus more classics.”

In addition to the fiction category which is the highlight of the Mid-Winter Book Sale, there will be: Hundreds of hand-picked LP records; Vintage paperbacks; Audio books, CDs, DVDs; Children’s books; Biography; History; Books celebrating Town of Fairfield; Large collection of comic books, 1970s – 1990s; Magazines; Cookbooks; and Classics.
