Used Book Sale
The book sale has been postponed until the fall or when health and safety concerns allow.

Although we have postponed our book sale, hopefully until the fall, let us reflect on the good the branch did this year with book sale proceeds. Without funds from this year’s book sale, we will not be able to sponsor such scholarships for the fall semester even though the need for financial aid will be even greater.

If you would like to make a donation so that we might continue to support female students for the fall semester, please send a check to Edie Allison at 11224 Troy Road, Rockville MD 20852-2438. Make out the check to “AAUW Gaithersburg,” and on the memo line please put “Scholarships.” Your donation will be sent to the colleges in late June for fall scholarships.

Proceeds benefit the AAUW Funds scholarship and research activities, AAUW Legal Advocacy Fund, and scholarships at Montgomery College
and other local educational institutions.

We collect books year round.  For information or if you have books to donate please
call 301-840-1258 or email booksale@meral.com
