Elmhurst AAUW Book Sale Helps Students – Elmhurst BMW Dealer

July 20th, 2017 by

Decluttering and buying second hand goods are big trends right now. Why not do both by donating your unwanted books, DVDs and CDs? Donate your items by July 29 so they can be resold at the AAUW (American Association of University Women) Elmhurst Area Branch Annual Used Book Sale. Drop-off barrels are conveniently located at the Elmhurst Public Library and other locations in Elmhurst. All of us at Elmhurst BMW encourage you to participate, as proceeds will enable this nonprofit organization to continue to provide community programs and scholarships for deserving students.

Every year, thousands of used hardcover and paperback books are donated for this special sale. You can find titles in more than 30 different categories, including self-help, travel, cookbooks, sports, the arts and more. There’s always a huge selection of children’s books, so you can pick up a few to keep the kids occupied while they’re out of school for the summer. There are even collector’s books — you never know what you’ll find! In addition to books, there will be DVDs and CDs for sale too.

The used book sale takes place August 3-6 at Lincoln Elementary School in Elmhurst. If you want to check out the selection of books ahead of the general public, you can get a sneak peek from 6-9 p.m. on Thursday, August 3. There is an admission fee of $10 for the Preview Sale. If you go Friday, August 4 through Sunday, August 6, admission to the sale is free. On the last day of the sale, you can buy an entire bag of books for just $10. Please note that debit and credit cards will not be accepted at the sale, so bring cash or your checkbook.
