Arts and crafts show to benefit new Warrior regional library

WARRIOR — An arts and crafts show in Warrior this weekend will benefit the city’s future library.

The Regional Library Foundation is hosting the show on Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the future library site, which is the former National Guard armory on Cane Creek Road.

There is space for 40 booths. A few spaces are still available for vendors who want to sell their goods.

Another boost for the library is a recent $5,000 donation from Cullman-Jefferson Gas in honor of J.D. McAlpine. McAlpine worked for the gas company for more than 30 years. He died recently and was a well-known worker for the city of Warrior.

“He was ‘Mr. Warrior,’” said Janie McCallie, a Regional Library Founda­tion board member. “He did everything for Warrior. If anybody in the city deserves recognition, that man deserved it.”  

In addition, the weekly book sale at the new library site is steadily earning $100-$125 a week, according to McCallie.

At the weekly sale, patrons can fill a plastic grocery bag full of books for $5. “People are loving it,” she said.

The library is accepting donations of books, and will host a book drive in October. The date will be announced.
