AAUW is the oldest women’s organization in the USA. Our mission is to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, and research. We have general meetings and various interest groups. Our major fundraiser is our annual used book sale.
All members, even new ones, are encouraged to participate as board members, group chairs, convention attendees, and book sale workers, in order to get the most out of the AAUW experience.
2017 Somerset Hills AAUW Used Book Sale
The Somerset Hills AAUW Used Book Sale has been a part of our community for 65 years. This is our only Branch fundraiser and a wonderful service project to our community. We usually collect over $25,000 for our AAUW scholarships, our local libraries and our other supported charities. Hopefully, we’ll do it again this year. 100% of the money raised after expenses (which are not much) goes to charity. It is a terrific way to recycle used books and to foster camaraderie of fellow book enthusiasts!
