The McLean Area American Association of University Women is holding its 43rd annual used book sale Sept. 14 – 16 at the McLean Community Center to raise money in support of AAUW’s mission of advancing equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research. The McLean Area AAUW Book sale has raised more than half a million dollars over previous years and 30 percent of this year’s revenues will fund scholarships for local women who are returning after some years of interruption to finish their degrees. The remainder of the funds will contribute to the 4.3 million dollars the National AAUW has committed this year for women’s scholarships, research grants and achievement awards, and for legal advocacy against discrimination and sexual harassment in the workplace.
The book sale will be stocked with over 40,000 thousand books and hundreds of musical CDs as well as DVDs of television series and movies. Six baskets will also be raffled off during the sale. A bonus for attendees will be the raffling of six special baskets.
The McLean Area AAUW used book sale will take place at the McLean Community Center, 1234 Ingleside Ave., McLean, on Sept. 14 from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m., Sept. 15 from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., and Sept. 16 from noon – 4 p.m. For more information, visit mcleanaauw.org.
