PADUCAH — The McCracken County Public Library and Computer Services Inc. in Paducah are collecting donations for Paducah's warming center, which is at Washington Street Baptist Church this fall and winter.
Washington Street Baptist Church opened its warming center on Nov. 11. The center is at 739 Washington St., next to the church's main building. The warming center will be available on nights when the low temperature is forecast to be 40 degrees or lower.
