Drop Off Your Reading Treasures With AAUW

The AAUW is accepting donations of "gently used" or new adult and children’s books, DVDs, and CDs. for its annual book sale. Donations will be accepted on Mondays through Saturday between 9 am and noon until April 14. One hundred volunteers work for six weeks preparing for the annual sale. You can drop off your treasures at the Memorial Pool Building, 359 Illick’s Mill RD, Bethlehem 18017.

The actual sale starts on April 20, and runs for four days. I'll have a post about that as the date approaches.

This is a rite of Spring in Bethlehem. Linda Robertson tells me that AAUW expects to handle 50,000 books this year for their 55th annual sale. Proceeds help fund scholarships for area high school students as well as a "Let's Read - Math" program in area elementary schools.

Last year, $40,000 was raised. When I lived in Bethlehem, I was there every year. There are some very good deals. Agent 99 often visited that sale as well, if memory serves.
