New and exciting changes are in the works for Book Sale 2017. Our revised plan includes later sale hours, surprise discounts,great deals for teachers, students, and senior citizens, coupon savings, author talks, and even “Afternoon Teas”!  More details will follow.  You won’t want to miss it!

 

Donations 

Gently used books, vinyl, CD’s , DVDs, and audio books,etc. may be donated in the lobby of the DISC at 14900 Ford Road Dearborn, 48126. We cannot accept encyclopedias or recent magazines. We prefer that college textbooks be recent,clean, and minimally marked. Thanks to the generosity of our donors through July 2017, drop-off book donations will be suspended from August 1,2017 until November 1,2017.  This will allow us to focus on getting ready for the upcoming sale.

The Process

Members of AAUW-Dearborn work year-round at the DISC(ice arena on Ford Rd near Chase). Sorting takes place on Tuesdays and Marking(packing) is on Thursdays.Pricing may be done on either day. Both teams meet from 9:30 am. until 11:00 am. Court assigned community service workers move the boxes for us to and from an area under the bleachers. Both teams enjoy a lot of camaraderie and eat lunch together after work once a month. Opening a book donation box is like discovering a treasure chest. One never knows what will be inside!   

Volunteer Opportunities

Community service organizations and non-member volunteers are also welcome to assist with the Book Sale Teams. Individuals are welcome to volunteer to help  with set up, during, and after the book sale. Especially needed are those interested in learning to price collectible, vintage/decor, and special editions.  Contact us through our email or phone number listed below, if you’d like to help.
