Each year, Roanoke Valley Branch of AAUW supports the education of women and girls in the community by providing $1000 and $1500 scholarships to a qualified regionally accredited college in the state. In order to fund these scholarships, the branch conducts several fundraisers.
The main fundraiser for the branch is the bi-annual book sale. The members spent countless hours collecting and sorting books for this sale, and it takes a small army of volunteers to help on the day of the book sale.
Support the Book Sale
This is your chance to get some great readers at low prices. Shop our many gently used books. Thousands of hardbacks, paperbacks, videos and DVDs will be available at deeply discounted prices.
Book Donations Welcome
We are accepting donations of books, videos, etc. for the next book sale, to be held at Tanglewood Mall. Your help is vital to the success of our sale and the ability for Roanoke Valley AAUW to award meaningful scholarships.
Please contact Book Sale chair Peggy Shifflett at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 540-580-6330 to coordinate and ensure someone will be at the mall space at your designated time.
