WILTON — Wilton Free Public Library will be holding a book sale by appointment 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 12, at the former Bass factory building on Weld Street.

This will be the first sale in over a year because of COVID-19 restrictions.

“We’re strongly encouraging calling the library and setting up an appointment,” director Jennifer Scott said in a phone interview Tuesday, June 8. “Only 15 people can be inside at a time. Half hour visits will be allocated.”

If people show up without an appointment they can browse the sale if there are less than 15 people there at the time, she said.

The entrance by the LEAP sign should be used to get to the sale, which is again located at the far back right where the two sections of the building join. That location is the one originally used for the sale and not the one closer to the Wilton Town Office that has been used recently.

“Volunteers have worked tirelessly to revamp the space,” Scott said. “We went from two rooms to one room.”

The sale will be by donation. There is a large selection of hardcover and paperbacks for kids, young adults, adults and in-betweens as well as some puzzles and other items, she said.

Fundraising provides 26% of the library’s total budget, Scott said. Book sales were not possible last year because of the coronavirus pandemic, she noted.

“We’re not accepting book donations at this time,” Scott said. “The space is full. That may change in the future.”

Those wishing to donate books should hold onto them until they can be accepted, she noted.

To make an appointment for the sale call the library 645-4831. Hours Friday are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
