Learn more about how you can give back to Fairfield by joining the Book Sale Volunteer Program at Pequot Library. Pequot Library celebrates its 57th Summer Book Sale in 2017. Hear how you can easily fit volunteering into your schedule.

With busy lives, it is sometimes hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering are enormous to you, your family, and your community. The circle of life with books at Pequot Library: the public donates gently used books year-round to Pequot Library for Pequot’s fundraising Book Sales. Book Sale Volunteers sort, price, and box books daily, then help out on the days of the Book Sale. Book lovers then purchase the books at the Book Sales, bringing the books back into new hands; the funds from the Book Sales directly support Pequot Library’s programs and services. Pequot Library presents four Book Sales a year including the year-round Lobby Book Sale which has changing monthly and seasonal themes.

Many Book Sale Volunteers have their own full-time jobs during the week and help sort and price books on weekends when they are available. Other volunteers are retired and make their own hours during the week. Younger volunteers, who are in school, help at the Book Sales themselves, especially the Summer Book Sale, known as “The Best Book Sale in New England.”

Love books? Love literature and reading? Love learning, being entertained, inspired, and enriched? Volunteering at Pequot Library can help you meet new friends, pursue your interests, and give back to the Town of Fairfield. Volunteering connects people and is a great way to develop new skills and meet new people with common interests. Doing volunteer work can be relaxing and energizing, providing renewed creativity, motivation, and vision that can be carried over into other parts of life. Many studies have also found volunteering can increase happiness. Thank you for joining us at Pequot Library and learning more about being a Book Sale Volunteer. Prospective volunteers are invited to come with questions.
