Summer is prime library book sale time in Fairfield County, but the Westport Public Library sponsors an annual Holiday Book Sale that is perfect for gift-buying season.

This year's sale is set for Saturday, Dec. 1, and Sunday, Dec. 2.

The event features steeply discounted, gift-quality books and other special items that are set aside all year just for this sale.

Westport Public Library, 20 Jesup Road, Westport. Saturday, Dec. 1, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sunday, Dec. 2, 1-5 p.m. Lower level. 203-291-4800,
