AAUW Used Book Sale Suspended for 2020.
It is with regret that Fort Atkinson AAUW is announcing it will not have the used book sale in September 2020 due to Covid-19. This is the first time in over 40 years Fort Atkinson AAUW has not held their annual used book sale. In addition to offering a large inventory of quality used books for sale, this sale is the major fund-raiser for the organization. Profits from the used book sale provide local and national scholarships supported by the organization. Local scholarships are to women studying for vocational/technical, undergraduate and graduate degrees from Fort Atkinson and Jefferson. Almost $20,000 will be awarded to local women this year. Since 1984 AAUW has awarded over 186 tuition scholarships totaling $352,050.
For used book donations this year, AAUW is requesting that you save the books until next year. For information regarding monetary donations and book sale updates, check Facebook at AAUW-Wisconsin: Fort Atkinson Branch or visit the website at http://fortatkinson-wi.aauw.net
Fort Atkinson AAUW would like to thank all who have supported the used book sale in past years and look forward to returning next year.
Our meetings are usually the first Monday of the month at 6:30pm, September through May, with the following exceptions: We meet the second Monday of September; and Saturday mornings in January and February.
