USED BOOK COLLECTIONS AND SALE
Used Book Collections have been suspended until further notice.

We have instructed Eagle Storage not to accept any book donations for us as we are paying storage on donations that are left when we are not able to accept and process them. Please do NOT take book donations to Eagle Storage until our book collections resume at some time in the future as the phased re-opening allows. In the meantime, please review our collection guidelines .

The Used Book Sale for June 2020 has been cancelled.

We plan to host a Used Book Sale in June of 2021 and to resume Used Book Collections as soon as possible. We are continuing to store all the books donated during the 2019/2020 collections.

You have been added to an email list to receive reminders about our annual Used Book Sale, traditionally held in June. Your email address was collected from you at the Used Book Sale. There will be a few more emails this summer concerning the online fundraising effort, but this list will not be used again until 2021 when we begin promotions for the sale.

If you do not wish to receive information from us about the Used Book Sale, please use the unsubscribe option at the bottom of this email.

If you would like to receive information about our programming during the year, including Used Book Collection dates, and information about National AAUW programs please subscribe to our Public Programs Notice email list at THIS link.
