Wilton Library Spring Book Sale
May 21, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until May 25, 2021
After a very long thirteen months of no book sales, Wilton Library is able to
open its doors for its Spring Book Sale fundraiser with appointments on Thursday, May 20; Friday, May 21; Saturday, May 22; Monday, May 24; and Tuesday, May 25 from 10:00, am until 4:00 pm each day.
On Thursday through Saturday, items will be priced as marked. Monday is $10 per
bag and Tuesday is $5 per bag.
The library will continue to follow the necessary safety protocols of buyers needing to wear
face masks covering noses and mouths, using hand sanitizers, and practicing physical distancing.
To reserve a 50-minute appointment, shoppers will visit the online reservation system set
up especially for the book sale. They will select the specific date and time that they want to come in and shop. There will be a reservation check-in at the front door. For those without access to computers, the Book Cellar can be reached at 203-762-3950, ext. 7012 to leave a message for a call back. Walk-ins will be accommodated when or if openings occur.
This year’s sale will be held entirely in the lower level, affectionately known as the Book
Cellar. The more than 70,000 items have been carefully cleaned, sorted, and categorized into more than 50 areas to help buyers quickly locate their favorite sections. With picture books for babies, chapter books and series for teens, mysteries, histories, biographies, historical fiction, gardening and self-help books, art and photography books, cookbooks, plus CDs, DVDs, and books on CDs, savvy shoppers will find something for everyone at bargain prices.
The Collectors Corner of rare and collectible books also will be available throughout the
five days. Shoppers who are ‘in the know’ can purchase their finds on the spot without having to wait for any kind of auction results.
Patrons should note that with the Book Cellar overflowing, the library cannot accept book
donations at this time. The book donation bins on the Godfrey Place side of the building will open soon after the sale. Patrons should watch for announcements.
Wilton Library is located at 137 Old Ridgefield Road in the heart of Wilton Center. Visit the Wilton Library website for directions and details. Visit the sign-up link here to make
