Book Collection to Support Scholarships for Women

— The McLean Area American Association of University Women’s (AAUW) Annual Book Collection in preparation for its 44th annual Book Sale is Saturday, June 8 at the Sun Trust Bank, 515 Maple Ave., Vienna, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Additional collection dates at the Sun Trust Bank are: June 29; July 20; and, Aug. 10. All kinds of books in good condition, especially children’s books and DVDs are needed.

The Book Sale will be Sept. 20, 21 and 22 at the McLean Community Center on Ingleside Avenue in McLean. Proceeds go toward scholarships and professional development for women and girls. In addition to the well sorted hardbacks and paperbacks in the main sales rooms, there will be special children’s and “treasures” rooms at the sale for the most valuable items collected.

At last year’s September Sale there were an estimated 46 thousand books on display sorted into 32 categories and AAUW members gave more than 1700 volunteer hours to generate over 36,000 dollars in revenue. AAUW hopes that this year’s 44th Annual Sale will do even better with the support of the metropolitan community.
