Pequot Library has the "biggest and best book sale in New England"
thanks to our amazing volunteers. Join us!

Please fill out a Volunteer Sign-Up Sheet for the Summer Book Sale, then print a copy and fill in your information. You can mail your completed form to the Library (Attn: Summer Sale Signup) or drop it off in person. You can also pick up a sign-up sheet at the Front Desk.

VolunteerPequot Library’s Book Sale is about more than just books. It is also about the people who work so hard to make the sale a success. More than 40 volunteers come to the Library throughout the year to process the donated books. These “pricers and sorters” diligently examine each book, assigning it a price and a category so that visitors can easily find the kinds of books they are looking for. They are joined by more than 100 additional volunteers who work in the days leading up to and during the Sale itself.

If you are interested in helping as a volunteer call the Library at (203) 259-0346 ext. 15.
