'The Hunt' For a Good Read at Friends of MCLIB Winter Book Sale
Friends of the McCracken County Public Library host their annual book sale event this weekend, featuring a huge collection of books priced at $1 dollar and a special table of early editions, local authors and art books priced a little higher. On Sounds Good, Ann Carneal says proceeds go to library services: from books to services like children's programs and continuing education. She also offers some 'pro tips' for hunting your next good read.
The Winter Book Sale is Friday, January 23 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Saturday, January 24 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at St. Paul Lutheran Church at 221 South 21st Street in Paducah.
Ann Carneal says to prepare by bringing book bags (some people bring rolling suitcases). If you're looking for specific authors or books, bring a list and the volunteers will try to help. She also recommends grabbing a map as you enter to find certain sections.
The mystery section is quite large, Carneal says, a really good selection this time around with books in nearly new condition. Books of every genre are represented in this year's collection. Most books are $1. Small paperbacks are 50 cents. The special collections table features books from local authors, early editions, photography and art books, and others that are priced higher.
