ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Flipping open a book isn't what it used to be. Amazon says it's sold more than 40 million Kindles since 2010 and that's only one of the e-readers out there.

But isn't there something just comforting and wonderful about cracking open the pages of an actual book?

Virginia Kramer with Friends of the Kirkwood Public Library joined First @ 4 with some leads on some great finds.

There will be a $5 entry fee on Wednesday only.
