2020 Book Sale Dates: Suspended
In accordance with the Covid-19 guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Fort Atkinson branch of AAUW has decided to suspend its 2020 Annual Used Book Sale. This was not a decision we came to lightly. However, we believe it’s prudent in order to help protect the safety of our members during the sale preparation and the community at large. Groundwork for our book sales begin each year in March. It involves countless volunteer hours as well as working with many area businesses. We do not want to put our volunteers at risk or place undue stress on the many generous businesses who assist with this sale each year. Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to holding this event in 2021!
The annual Used Book Sale is our major fund raiser for Local and National Scholarships. Each year our branch awards local scholarships to undergraduate and graduate level women from Fort Atkinson and Jefferson. In addition, we contribute to the National AAUW Educational Opportunities Fund, which awards graduate level fellowships to women nationwide. Save your book donations for 2021, and then look for our donation bins in locations around Fort Atkinson in July and August. Your donation of “gently used” books are greatly appreciated.
Your purchase of books will provide funds for scholarships. And
everyone has more great books to read!
It’s a “Win-Win” for everyone!
