Epic Book Sale Returns for 57th Year in Southport

The Pequot Library in Southport is hosting its 57th Annual Summer Book Sale from July 21 to July 25. The sale will be open 9am to 6pm daily except on Tuesday when the sale will end at 2pm. The event includes more than 60 categories of over 140,000 previously-loved and donated books, CDs, DVDs, records and unique specials. Admission is free and open to the public. Proceeds directly fund Pequot Library’s more than 750 annual programs and events.

The pricing is double the marked price on July 21, priced as marked on July 22 and July 23, half the marked price on July 24, and $5 per bag on July 25. If you spend $250 on Friday, you receive a 20 percent discount on all purchases (special items excluded). Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express are accepted at the sale. If possible, bring your own reusable bags to help the environment and cut down on the number of plastic bags used.

Parking is available in Pequot Library’s parking lot, the Trinity Episcopal Church parking lot (on the corner of Pequot Avenue and Center Street), or in the Southport Congregational Church parking lot (524 Pequot Avenue and across from church). On the weekend, parking is available in the train station parking lot, located at 400 Center Street. Trinity Church will run a Parking for Food drive in conjunction with the Pequot Library Book Sale. Church parking will be available Friday through Sunday from 8:30am to 5pm. Trinity volunteers will be on hand to collect food and cash donations in support of food pantries at St. Luke’s and St. John’s in Bridgeport.
