Last Day for Friends of Library Fall Book Sale
By WestKyStar & Friends of Library
PADUCAH - Friends of the McCracken County Public Library's Fall/ Winter Book Sale continues today.

After twenty-seven years of sponsoring January and July book sales, the Friends of the McCracken County Library Board of Directors voted to move the semi- annual book sales to November and June to avoid  extreme weather conditions. The bargain books and audiovisual materials formerly sold in January were available Friday, and will be available Saturday at Paducah's St Paul Lutheran Church Gym,  located at 211 South 21st St. and Kentucky Ave.   

The sale is from 9 am to 1 pm, and Saturday is "Bag Day," and the remainder books are sold for $5 a grocery sack which is provided by the Friends of the Library.    

The sale features more than 20,000 books and audiovisual materials  at affordable prices. Hardback books, trade edition paperbacks, and DVD's and audio books sell for $1. Pocketbook paperbacks, some children's books, and music CD's are only fifty cents each. Special interest and collector books and audiovisual items are offered at below market prices.   

Proceeds from the book sale are donated to the library  to support programming and collection development. The Friends donated $15,000 to the Library from the summer 2019 book sale.   

Those who wish to donate to the book sales may drop their donations in the donation box outside the Library's Kentucky Avenue (parking lot) entrance.   

Friends of the Library membership forms are available on the library's website at   

The book sale also includes the church's sale of homemade pastries and other food products to support mission projects.   

For more information, contact Friends of the Library Book Sale Committee Chair Jennie Boyarski at 270-994-2122.
