Welcome to the Somerset Hills Branch of AAUW

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.

Somerset Hills AAUW Program – November 2015

Carol Simon Levin presents Bridge Builder in Petticoats: Emily Warren Roebling and the Brooklyn Bridge

Our program, Bridge Builder in Petticoats will be presented by Carol Simon Levin who is a Youth Services Librarian, author, storyteller and program presenter based in Bridgewater, NJ. Whether she is impersonating Emily Warren Roebling who helped to build the Brooklyn Bridge, telling the amazing stories of early women in aviation, engaging families in a rousing Halloween Hootenanny of songs and stories, expanding on the mathematical and artistic possibilities of a simple square, or sharing the story of a dolphin who learned to swim with an artificial tail (along with activities to help children understand what it is like to live with a disability), she always strives to create exciting programs that engage her audience’s interests and expand their horizons.

She is particularly fascinated by the history of technology and women’s history. Carol holds a B.A. in Economics/History (emphasis on social history/women’s history/history of technology) from Cornell and a Masters of Library Science from University of Arizona. She began her career as a college librarian at St. Lawrence University and for the past 25 years has been a Youth Services Librarian at the Bridgewater Library.  In her spare time Carol loves reading, attending the wonderful theater NJ offers, hiking the gorgeous NJ trails, and writing children’s books on “Fascinating Women History Forgot.” She currently lives in Bedminster, NJ.
