WESTPORT - The Westport Library's annual book sale returns Friday, July 10 through Sunday, July 12, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., preceded by the traditional First View Party Thursday, July 9, from 6-8 p.m.
"The book sale has a multitude of wonderful books, new and old, hard covers and paperbacks for all ages, including some very soft books for future readers," said library board member Cynthia Schira. "Our 'specials' table offers quite extraordinary finds - unique, valuable and rare items."
Shirley Bullard, another board member said, "Last year, one person, who wishes to remain anonymous, did almost all of her Christmas shopping at our sale!"
The planning committee looks forward to seeing many hundreds of books, given by generous donors, find new homes to benefit the Westport Library. Early shoppers revel at the First View Party on Thursday evening, with champagne, strawberries, and other delicacies. A beautiful Westport chair, in the traditional Thomas Lee design, will be raffled. Suggested donation for the First View Party is $15.
Community member Nancy Hale said, "This is a lovely party where new and old friends meet and celebrate our beautiful library. All of us look forward to this celebration of the opening of our huge book sale."
