Book prices start at just $3 for hardcover and $2 for paperbacks on Thursday, dropping to $2 for hardcover and $1 for paperbacks on Friday, and finally, to just $5 for a bag of books all day on Saturday!
Thousands of fiction and nonfiction books, audiobooks, CDs and DVDs will be on sale. Nonfiction books are separated into more than 50 categories, including biography, cooking, history, religion, self-help and a large selection of children’s books. Shoppers can find books for their own reading pleasure, as well as gifts, such as coffee table books, cookbooks, golden oldies, or the latest bestseller.
Since our first event in 1979, the Lewis County AAUW book sale has provided thousands of locals with the opportunity to discover and purchase books of all types at bargain prices. Proceeds from the book sale support the mission of AAUW – education for women. With the money raised from the book sale, we have awarded numerous scholarships to local women attending college and to middle and high school girls for summer camps focusing on STEM subjects. Lewis County AAUW also co-sponsors Expanding Your Horizons, a hands-on career day for middle school students each October, and hosts LUNAFEST, a festival of films by, for, and about women each April.
Founded in 1881, AAUW is the largest and oldest national organization working for the professional and educational advancement of women. This year, our Lewis County branch is proud to be celebrating our 100th year since the branch was formed in 1923.
