Announcing Our New Bookshop: The Book BasementThe Gunn Memorial Library is delighted to announce the opening of a new "used" bookshop The Book Basement. This year-round bookshop is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. But it's best to call 860-868-7586 to confirm open hours before you make a special trip.
It is with the Herculean efforts and creativity of a very special volunteer, Bob Williams, that we have arrived at this day. For years, he has almost single-handedly sorted and priced the books for our very successful annual book sales, manned by our faithful volunteers. Bob has worked tirelessly again this year and he is very pleased with the offerings for sale.
Thousands of quality books have been organized in new floor-to-ceiling bookcases on the level below the Junior Library. We have a collection of Irish literature and Spanish language books. There is an extensive selection of children’s books, art books, rare books, fiction, history, photography, gardening, travel, nature, and sports publications. The cookbooks are overflowing the shelves. We have music and books on CD, DVDs and a few LPs - which we call "collectible vinyl."
