The Little Book Store and Seasonal Sales

The Little Book Store is Now Open
Come visit The Little Book Store, the Friends’ year-round bookshop and Newtown’s only discount book outlet! Open during library hours, The Little Book Store is conveniently located just a few steps beyond the main circulation desk.

Our easy-to-browse inventory is arranged according to popular categories – like fiction, mystery, science fiction, cooking, crafts, gardening, history and government, general nonfiction (appropriate for homeschoolers), children’s books (by reading level) and more – and includes the occasional unusual and unique item. We have books in hard cover, trade and paperback. There’s something for everyone, and payment by cash or check is easy at the main circulation desk.
Payment for items can be made by cash (exact change please), check, or credit card via PayPal. A drop box is located on the check-out counter for exact cash and checks.

What else you’ll find at The Little Book Store:

  • Inventory updated regularly
  • Computer games, DVDs and CDs 
  • Boutique gift items, books, and themed sales for special seasonal holidays – i.e. Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Halloween, etc.

Personal assistance – looking to purchase a specific book? Just submit a request at the circulation desk, and our volunteers will make every effort to locate that special item in our stock.

Personal service, gift-quality items, and extremely reasonable prices are what make the Little Book Store a welcome resource for library patrons and all book lovers.

Be sure to visit for new limited-time special offers.
