MADISON — Delight in a curated selection of over 2,000 gently-used books on Saturday, September 30, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The event, proudly presented by the American Association of University Women (AAUW) Madison Area branch, will take place at the F.M. Kirby Children’s Center on 54 East Street, Madison. Don’t miss out on these fantastic finds at irresistible prices!
The event’s proceeds are channeled towards significant educational initiatives for women and young girls. This includes the Mature Woman’s Grant awards and the groundbreaking AAUW New Jersey Tech Trek STEM camp tailored for middle school girls. Over the previous two years, nine noteworthy grants have been allocated to local women pursuing further education, and several middle school girls have been sponsored to attend the Tech Trek camp.
For those interested in supporting, the Madison Area YMCA lobby is accepting book donations from September 11 to 14. The branch emphasizes the importance of donating only saleable books. Residents with donations exceeding three boxes should reach out to [email protected] to arrange an alternate drop-off in Madison. Please note, they can’t accept textbooks, encyclopedias, or any audio or video materials.
With over a century of commitment, the AAUW has been a beacon of change for women. The Madison branch fervently continues this mission, offering educational grants, STEM exposure for teen girls, engaging monthly programs, and special interest groups such as book clubs, mahjongg games, and more. Engage with this community to find purpose, camaraderie, and shared interests.
