This Enormous Warehouse Of Used Books In Kentucky Will Be Your New Favorite Destination
At a time when more and more people tend to read on some sort of electronic device, many still love the feel and experience of holding an actual book in their hands. Large bookstores, and even smaller local ones, are harder and harder to find, and it’s important that we support those that are still around. The Friends of the Lexington Public Library, an active non-profit, is doing their part with the Friends Book Cellar. This warehouse of used books is filled with an enormous collection of titles and it may just become your new favorite destination.
Please note, Friends Book Cellar is temporarily closed.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
