MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. — 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 15,000 donated titles are available for purchase at St. Paul Lutheran Church gym at the corner of South 21st Street and Kentucky Avenue in Paducah, Friday, Jan. 20 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday, Jan. 21 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Most hardback copies and trade edition paperbacks are $1 and the pocketbook paperbacks are 50 cents. Newer and collector titles, as well as Kentucky books, are deeply discounted from retail prices.

Each year, the Friends of the Library donate thousands of dollars to support the acquisition of new services, programs and materials. Many of those funds come from used book sales in July and January.
