Westport Book Sale Ventures, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit enterprise with a dual social mission -- to raise funds to support the exceptional programming and operations of the Westport Library, while providing meaningful competitive employment and volunteer opportunities for adults with disabilities, through the operation of used book sales and related activities.
We offer employment opportunities for adults with disabilities, teaching transferable job skills and aiding in the development of workplace social skills. Our goal is to help our employees acquire the skills necessary to seek employment throughout the community, and for our community to be ever more accepting, inclusive and respectful of people with differing abilities.
Currently, we hold three seasonal book sale events annually, and also offer a small selection of current books for sale on the "daily sale" shelves inside the Westport Library. Our goal is to identify additional outlets to expand our retail sale of used books, with the objective of creating greater community engagement, and providing more positions with more transferable skills for competitive employment.
