Welcome to the Roanoke Valley, VA Branch of AAUW!

FALL BOOK SALE: SEPTEMBER 5-7
FEATURING LOCAL WOMEN AUTHORS!

Our branch holds two book sales annually. The main one is in September, the weekend following Labor Day. The second one takes place in February, to coincide with the Tanglewood Mall family friendly event.

Most of our members are involved in the sales in one way or another. We start collecting books as soon as each book sale ends. We sort them, classify them and arrange them in our space at Tanglewood Mall (on the second level, opposite Belk’s).

The money we raise goes to fund scholarships that we award not only to high school girls, but also women who have decided to return to college for their degrees. 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.

Throughout the year, many of our members work tirelessly in the book sale space to sort and clean books for our twice annual book sales. As a result, we are able to award several scholarships each year to women and girls in our community. Click here to learn more about the scholarship recipients.
