Bookstore Community Fund

Bank Square Books is proud to announce the Bookstore Community Fund

The Bookstore Community Fund is a “pay it forward” style program in which customers may either purchase a gift card to add to the fund or use a gift card to purchase a new book at Bank Square Books. This project was created with grant funds from the City of New London and is for the community by the community. The gift cards will be housed in a hand-painted mural, designed by award-winning author and illustrator Juana Martinez-Neal, located in the lobby of our store located at 345 State Street in New London, CT.

The Mission

Bank Square Books believes bookstores are an important part of any downtown community and that sometimes people simply need a book to call their own. By increasing accessibility, we hope to place more books into the hands of folks within our local community. 

Need Help Purchasing a Book?

Bank Square Books acknowledges that new books are expensive and not everyone has the luxury of purchasing books at cover price. We seek to make new books more accessible by making available gift cards to offset the cost of a new book. If you need financial help purchasing a book, take a gift card from the mural as you come into the store and bring it to the register once you're finished browsing.
