Next Book Sale September 8-10, 2017
Twice a year our branch hosts a book sale for the Roanoke community. Most of our members are involved with the book sale in one form of another, and we are very pleased to support the community in this way.
Support the Community
The money we make goes to fund scholarships that we award not only to high school girls, but to women who have decided to return to college for their degrees. We have used some of the proceeds to fund Help Save the Next Girl training and STEM conferences for girls in order to interest them in careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. We also support our parent organization, AAUW, for their graduate school fellowships for women. We are proud of our work to provide educational opportunities for women and girls because we know how positively and how deeply this affects society in general.
We hope you will continue to support the AAUW Book Sale and look forward to seeing you again!
