Covington’s J. R. Clarke Public Library Semi-Annual Book Sale will take place the weekend of Friday, September 18 from 9am-5pm and Saturday, September 19 from 9am-2pm.  This book sale is sponsored by the Friends of J.R. Clarke Public Library and chaired by Volunteer, Brandy Pence and company!  We will be setting up a few days ahead and there will be a special time to preview these books on Thursday, September 17 from 5:00 – 6:30 pm in the Community Room.  

This special period is open to all teachers of children and teens; homeschooling, public, Christian, parochial, private.  There will also be older classics available in the J.R. Clarke Alcove on the top floor for collectors.  

During the entire Saturday of the Book Sale, books can be purchased at $1.00 a bag.  Social Distancing will be required and we strongly recommend you wear a mask.  Masks and gloves will be available.  If you have any questions, contact the library at 937-473-2226!

In addition, the same times as the Book Sale is our “Free Your Mind of Fines!”  If you currently have a fine with J.R. Clarke, come on in and get the fines taken off your record!  We will also grant the deletion of one Lost Book.  We want your visit to J.R. Clarke Public Library to be fun and a great place to relax and enjoy!  Fines can only be taken off a patron’s record in person at the library.
