Westport Library's Annual Summer Book Sale wraps up

Hundreds of Westporters and out-of-town visitors took advantage of the glorious weekend weather to
attend the Westport Library’s Annual Summer Book Sale.  The Westport Library Book Sale

sale featured more than 80,000 books, arranged in 40 categories 

and displayed throughout large tents, set up on Jesup Green, in

front of the library. A special collection of  books were on display

inside the library, including a signed Andy Warhol edition, which 
sold early Saturday morning, for $1,000. Also for sale were DVD's,
CD’s, videos and music cassettes.

 

According to one book sale volunteer, attendance was up this year, likely due to the wonderful weather. When asked if the popularity of ebooks had an effect on sales, she said the only possible impact was in the hardcover, fiction category.

 

Just a short distance from the book sale, shoppers also visited the Westport Downtown Merchants 
Association's 39th Annual Fine Arts Festival. Visitors perused the art while strolling along the
Westport Fine Arts Festival       Saugatuck River, where the work of more than 100 artists
       was 
only on display through Parker Harding Plaza and
       Gorham Island. Rounding out the festival was a food court,
       children's activity center and entertainment pavilion.

       This year, the Festival hours were extended from 10 A.M.  
       to 7 P.M., on Saturday and 10 A.M. to 5 P.M., on Sunday. 
       The Book Sale ran through midday, Tuesday, with books 
       offered at half price on Monday and free on Tuesday, with a
       suggested donation of $5 per bag.
