The Transylvania Times -

Yellow Book Collection Boxes Ready For Filling – Brevard NC


Look for the yellow boxes placed by the Ameri-can Association of University Women (AAUW) in convenient locations throughout Brevard and surrounding communities.

For the 44th year, the AAUW is asking for donations of used books to raise money at the annual book sale to fund educational scholarships and support for local young women.

The 2013 book sale will be held Saturday, June 22, through Thursday, June 27, at the Boshamer Gymna-sium on the campus of Brevard College.

Scholarships have been given to women attending Brevard College and Blue Ridge Community College and for elementary and middle school girls to attend science camp. The AAUW has also contributed to the New Century Scholars program in the Transylvania school system and has endowed two college scholarships.

Thousands of books are collected in yellow boxes. Hundreds of hours are spent during the winter and spring months sorting and pricing the books before moving them to Boshamer Gym, where once again the AAUW will open the doors for the first rush of book lovers and collectors.
