FAIRFIELD, Conn. — "Amazing." That's how one book lover described the opening day of the 57th annual Pequot Library Summer Book Sale in Fairfield on Friday.

But don't despair: With an estimated 140,000 books to choose from, the book sale will continue all weekend and  through Tuesday, July 25, at the Southport library.

Dubbed “The Best Book Sale in New England,” the library’s sale draws both book dealers looking for rare finds and voracious readers picking up a novel or two for the beach.

The sale boasts dozens of categories from biography and cookbooks to fiction and “exotica.”

The sale takes place under large tents on the library’s Great Lawn and parking lot as well as in the auditorium, reading room and Rennell Room of the library.

Admission is free and open to the public. All proceeds help fund the more than 750 programs and events that the library holds each year.
