The Book Sale is Back in 2021!

53rd Annual Pawlet Public Library Book Sale

Save the Dates!

Saturday and Sunday

July 24-25, 2021


This huge annual event is the primary fundraiser for the library. You won’t want to miss the chance to get bargains on new, used and antique books. Our all-volunteer-run event shows our community at its best, drawing shoppers from all over Vermont and nearby states. Held at the Mettawee Community School in West Pawlet because it’s so big–over 20,000 books!

Please we aware that the cost of disposing of damaged books, or books that cannot be sold, falls to the library and greatly impacts our fundraising.
