The McLean Area American Association of University Women (AAUW) 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 the previous forty plus years. 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 and McLean AAUW local scholarships for re-entry women students.
The Friday through Sunday, Sept. 14-16, 2012 AAUW Book Sale is well stocked with over forty thousand books plus hundreds of musical CDs as well as DVDs of television series and movies. Recent editions of histories, including many military histories, biographies, political analyses, as well as gardening, health, general literature and business and economics books are abundant. There are also treasured collectibles and special art books, a huge and complete collection of mystery stories, lots of children’s and general interest adult books.
The McLean Area AAUW is grateful for the ongoing support of the SunTrust Bank of East Vienna which has provided facilities to allow AAUW volunteers to spend thousands of hours receiving, sorting and temporarily storing the more than 1500 boxes of books, CDs and DVDs received this year and also thanks the McLean Community Center.
