Book Sale



Thanks to all who contributed and attended our 67th book sale in September.  We appreciate your patronage.  Also, special thanks to all of our members, their families, and others who volunteered their time and talents.  The book sale is an enormous year-round undertaking and it takes a united effort to make it successful. With that in mind, we look forward to future book sales so that we may continue to support educational programs at HFC and UM-D.

Sincerely, Rosa Scaramucci, Past Chair 2018-19


Current Donations will be suspended from August 15th through October 31, 2018 as we prepare and recover from our September Sale!

Beginning November 2018Gently used books in salable condition, vinyl, CD’s , DVDs, and audio books,etc. may be donated in the lobby of the DISC( ice arena) at 14900 Ford Road Dearborn, 48126 during their business hours. We cannot accept encyclopedias or recent magazines. All textbooks must be less than three years old,clean, and minimally marked.

We are a non-profit organization, but do not have a 501c3 status and therefore cannot issue any tax donation receipts for book or other donations at this time.

The Process

Members of AAUW-Dearborn work year-round at the DISC (ice arena on Ford Rd near Chase). Sorting takes place on Thursdays and Marking(packing) is on Tuesdays. 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. 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 as sorters,packers, or pricers. Adults 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 and/ or developing online sales.  Contact us through our email or phone number listed below, if you’d like to help.

Who Benefits from the sale?

Profits from AAUW-Dearborn book sales help to support educational programs. The majority of the funds provide scholarships, workshops, and conference opportunities for students attending HFC and U of M-Dearborn.
