Friends of the Library

An important announcement from Friends of McCracken County Public Library:

Due to COVID-19, the Friends of the McCracken County Public Library have canceled their annual summer book sale scheduled for June 12 and 13.

The Friends have also temporarily stopped accepting book donations. They hope to resume accepting donations in late July.

The next Friends book sale has yet to be determined, but there are tentative plans to hold a mini sale in the Library during Fall Quilt Week in September. More information will be forthcoming.

All Friends membership activities are temporarily suspended, including new and renewed memberships. When the Friends are able to resume regular operations, all current memberships will be adjusted to ensure that all members are eligible for the two major annual sales.

For updates on Friends of the Library activities, visit this page. Updates will also be posted on the Library’s Facebook page.

The Friends are grateful for the community’s support and look forward to when they can safely hold another sale. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
