Spring into a good book

Annual sale at Laurel County Public Library open to the public

CORBIN — By LeeAnn Cain / Staff Writer

It’s time to spring into a good book. The Laurel County Public Library’s annual spring book sale opens to the public today (Thursday). While the Friends of the Library had a special Preview Sale Wednesday, the sale opens to the public from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. today and Friday.

Saturday is Bag Day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and patrons may fill a bag to the brim for $2.

Hundreds of books, magazines, audiobooks, puzzles, children’s games and DVDs will be available for purchase at discounted prices. According to Laurel County Public Library Community Relations and Adult Program Assistant Magen McCrarey, the price of books will range from 50 cents to $4. All genres of books will be available, from children’s books to science fiction.

Books from the sale are mostly donations from patrons, and a few are old books pulled from the shelves. McCrarey said the library takes donations year-round, and noted the library will need book donations after this week’s sale. According to McCrarey, the books on sale are mostly lightly used and relatively new, although older books are also available.

The funds raised from this sale will assist Friends of the Library to provide programs such as Books for Babies at Saint Joseph London, where all newborns receive their first books. The funds also contribute to extra programming at the library such as theater, dance and musical performances.

You can become a Friends of the Library member by calling 864-5759 or by visiting the library’s circulation desk to ask for an application.

For more information, contact McCrarey or Gwen Stivers at 864-5759.
