Booksale Postponement

Dear Friends,


The Lexington Public Library announced that they will not be resuming regular operations on April 6th and have extended the system-wide library closure indefinitely. After reviewing the current recommendations from public health and government officials, the Friends has decided to postpone the Spring Book Sale for the foreseeable future. We hope that we will be able to announce rescheduled dates for the book sale over the summer, but we will continue to follow guidelines issued by public health and government officials.


The Friends Book Cellar store and online sales will remain closed for the foreseeable future as well. You can still support the Lexington Public Library by becoming a Friend of the Library at our website


Take care of yourselves and each other,


The Friends of the Lexington Public Library
