Friends of Library Book Sale Cancelled

PADUCAH - Due to COVID -19 and the restrictions, the Friends of the McCracken County Public Library’s Spring/Summer Book Sale set for June 12 &13 has been cancelled. 

In the past, the sales have been delayed by weather; however, in the 28 years of sponsoring the used book sales, this is the first cancellation of a Friends of the Library book sale. This will be a major disappointment to the loyal book sale shoppers.   

According to Library Director Susan Baier, they have had several calls asking about the June book sale as well as the reinstallation of the donation box outside the covered library entrance.

The next possible book sale will be a small sale in the library during the AQS Quilt Show and Contest in early September. The next possible date for a large book sale is not until November 6 & 7. This again is tentative.

Hosting a book sale with the limited number of people allowed in an area at one time, sanitizing, and keeping the volunteers safe forced the Friends Board of Directors to make some difficult decisions Monday, May 11 in a zoomed Friends of the Library Board meeting.
