Since 1936, the AAUW-Appleton Branch has been sponsoring a used book sale to raise money for scholarships for women. Half of the money each year goes to the national AAUW organization. The other half of the money is given as scholarships to local women finishing their baccalaureate degrees or pursuing graduate degree programs. We give two scholarships to women finishing their Associates degrees at Fox Valley Technical College.
Besides raising scholarship money, our book sale promotes a vital local community offering
life-long learning, increasing literacy, and the recycling of books and other materials.
2020 Book Sale Update:
Planning is underway for our 2020 sale, but so much depends on the status of this part of Wisconsin and the Covid-19 pandemic as we head into the fall.
At this point we are asking you to hold on to any donations for the sale until we have access to our new book collection storage facility. If you have an urgent, immediate need such as moving out of town, you may contact one of our Book Pick-up representatives as listed here:
