Friends of the Library Book Sale Starts Today
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - Bargain books and audiovisual materials will once again be available for purchase at the Friends of the McCracken County Public Library’s Winter Book sale today and Saturday at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Paducah.

Book sale hours are today from 9 am to 7 pm and Saturday from 9 am to 1 pm at the St. Paul Lutheran Church gym, located on the corner of South 21st Street and Kentucky Avenue.

The semi-annual book sale features more than 20,000 books and audiovisual titles arranged by subject or format and marked down to rock bottom prices. Most hardback books, trade edition paperback book and DVDs and audio books are only $1. Pocketbook paperback publications, music CDs and some children's books are just fifty cents each. Special interest and local collector titles are available at deeply discounted amounts.

Sale proceeds benefit the McCracken County Public Library’s collection development and services. Over the last twenty-six years, Library administration has used some of the thousands of dollars donated by the Friends to improve information access by adding new technology as well as enhancing the library’s summer reading programs. The Friends donated $14,000 to the Library from the summer 2018 book sale.

Sale attendees will have the opportunity to join the Friends of the Library at the book sale. Membership forms are also available on the library’s website at and at the library’s service desks except during the week of the book sale.

Those who wish to donate materials to the book sale can do so by dropping them in the donation box outside of the Library’s Kentucky Avenue entrance.

The book sale also includes the sale of homemade pastries and other food products to support St. Paul Lutheran Church’s mission projects.

For more information, contact Friends of the Library President and Book Sale Coordinator Paula Franklin at 270-331-3970.
