Friends Book Sales

Due to the current rise of COVID-19 cases and Governor Andy Beshear’s recent mandate, the Friends Book Sales scheduled in November and December are canceled. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please visit for current information.

There is a Friends Book Sale every Saturday, from 9 am- 5 pm, through Saturday, Dec. 12. The sale is in the Friends Room on the lower level of our Newport Branch.

All sales are bag sales. Buy a $4 bag from the Friends and fill it with any books from the entire sale room. A large selection of items are available. There is a 2-bag limit per visit into the Friends Room but multiple visits per day are permitted and encouraged.

The Friends Room has a maximum capacity limit due to social distancing requirements. We will monitor capacity in the Friends Room and allow entrance as others leave. Masks are required for entrance. No outside bags or boxes permitted.

The Friends of the Library are not currently accepting donations due to the need to quarantine items for four days. Unfortunately, they do not have the space available to do so. We are hoping that the November and December sales will clear out the Friends Room enough to begin accepting donations again.
