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.

2015 Somerset Hills AAUW Used Book Sale


The 2015 Somerset Hills AAUW Used Book Sale planning has already started and the dates and times finalized! The Book Sale has been a part of our community for over 60 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!

Location:Thousands of books all sorted by category.

Bernardsville Middle School

Seney Drive, Bernardsville

Dates and Times:

Thursday, August 6th, Noon to 8pm

Friday, August 7th, Noon to 8pm

Saturday, August 8th, 9am to 3pm

Book prices will remain the same as last year. Books, both hardback and paperback, in the main room will be sold at $1.00. Children’s books vary in price. On the first day, Thursday, there will be a 25% premium on books in the main room. Rare and choice books in the separate room managed by Beryl Hunter are priced individually and are not subject to the first day 25% premium. There is no admission charge to attend our book sale. However, admission numbers will be passed out to determine entry order for the long line that always forms on the morning of the first day of the sale starting at 9:00 am.

BOOK DONATIONS can be dropped off on the loading dock of the Bernardsville Middle School  starting July 27 – 30 and August 3 starting at 9 am until 2 pm.

We gladly accept all types of books, CDs and DVDs. We do not accept VHS or cassette tapes, magazines, encyclopedias, text books or torn/written in/moldy/dusty old books.

If you are interested in volunteering to help us sort the tens of thousands of donated books, we can surely use your help. Teenagers who volunteer receive community service hours required by their high school (contact Joyce Clark at robjoyclark@verizon.net). Sorting begins on July 27th.
