Book Sale #65 was a Success!

A BIG THANK YOU to all of our loyal and new book sale customers and awesome volunteers! We hope you enjoyed our updated look and upgraded guest services. Over $12,500 was earned for scholarships and community programs. Next year’s sale is scheduled for September 28-October 1, 2017. 

Donations Now Being Accepted

Gently used books, vinyl, CD’s , DVDs, and audio books,etc. may be donated year-round 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.

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!
