MORE VINYL RECORDS AND EXPANDED MEDIA TENT AT PEQUOT LIBRARY’S 54TH ANNUAL SUMMER BOOK SALE

Southport, CT – In the The New York Times article "Weaned on CDs, They’re Reaching for Vinyl,” arts and entertainment reporter, Allan Kozinn, wrote “Vinyl is growing out of its niche . . . There were always record collectors who disdained the compact disc, arguing that an LP’s grooves yielded warmth and depth that the CD’s digital code could not match.” (June 9, 2013)

Pequot Library has heard the same remarks from local music lovers. This year’s 54th Annual Summer Book Sale, Friday, July 25 - Tuesday, July 29, features an expanded media tent area to accommodate newly donated items. Paige Gillies, long-time Book Sale vinyl volunteer says, “Records are so hot this year and we have classical in excellent condition, mostly imports, many unopened. There are lots of modern composers, too, and hundreds of CDs in pristine condition. We have good, clean well-priced stock.” Known as “The Best Book Sale in New England,” Pequot Library’s sale also includes pop music, jazz, and international selections in its expanded media tent.

On another musical note, and especially useful for instrumental and piano teachers, there will be plenty of materials – sheet music, guitar books, opera, Broadway. Lots of items for guitar, voice, and drama teachers. Admission is free and all Sale proceeds help fund Pequot Library's over 400 yearly inter-generational programs and events, all open to the public. High quality books and music at reasonable prices, with Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express accepted.

Tented space is comfortably spread out on Pequot Library’s expansive Great Lawn and parking lot. For the public’s comfort, picnic tables are provided with areas to relax and eat, under the shade of large trees. The Book Sale continues in Pequot Library’s sizable Auditorium/Concert Hall. The Summer Book Sale includes over 40 categories of books and other media items, including the favorites: Children’s Books; Art and Photography; Business; Biography; Several sections of History (USA, European, World, and Military); Computer Software and Books; Cooking; Crafts and Style; Foreign Language; Gardening; Mystery and Thriller; Romance; Science; Sports; Science Fiction; Current Fiction; Classic Fiction; Poetry and Drama; Trade Paperbacks; CDs, DVDs, records, tapes, and Audiobooks; Sheet music, music books, comic books, prints.
