New Year means New Savings on Used Books

Posted on January 9, 2008. Filed under: book sale, books, community, events, family, Food, Friends of the Library, Kentucky, library, McCracken County, News, Paducah |

Is your New Year’s resolution to spend less and read more?  Let the Friends of the McCracken County Public Library help you on the road to self-improvement with their bi-annual Winter Used Book Sale!

More than 5,000 donated titles are available for purchase at St. Paul Lutheran Church gym, at the corner of South 21st Street and Kentucky Avenue, Friday, January 25th, from 9 AM to 7 PM, and Saturday, January 26th, from 9 AM to 1 PM.  Most hardback copies are $1 and most paperback books are 50 cents.  Newer and collector titles, as well as Kentucky books, are discounted from retail price.

Are bestsellers the hardest on your wallet?  The Friends can help!  This sale features a special table of recent bestsellers on sale at reduced prices.  In addition, all book costs drop even further during the final hours of the sale Saturday.  (And since you are doing so well on your other resolutions, why not splurge at the St. Paul Lutheran Church’s bake sale?  It always accompanies the used book sale, as a sweet treat.  What are a few calories for a good cause?)

All book sale payments may be made in cash or by check.  Proceeds benefit the McCracken County Public Library.  Each year, the Friends of the Library donate thousands of dollars to support the acquisition of new services, programs, and materials.  Most of those funds come from used book sales in July and January.  Last summer’s sale grossed $12,294 – a new record!  In the last ten years, the Friends have donated in excess of $150,000 to the library.

You can become a Friend today!  Make donations, help raise funds, or support the ongoing mission of the library.  Sign up at the sale or by calling Friends of the Library President Maudine Buchanan at (270) 442-6263 or the library staff at (270) 442-2510.
