Attention, book sale lovers! If you love to volunteer or shop at the sale, mark your calendar for May 11-14, 2024 at the Penn State Snider Ag Arena:

This event is our signature fundraiser. Profits fund local grants and scholarships that help advance equity for women and girls.

VOLUNTEERS: We will need help greeting donors, tidying up the tables filled with books, and cashiers to process sales at the end. Shifts are mostly 2-3 hours in length. Contact AAUW State College after March 1 if you have queries about volunteering:

SHOPPERS: The books for sale are all donated and processed at the AAUW State College Used Book Workshop. In total, 3,500-4,000 boxes of books will be brought to the sale, approximately 150,000 books, making this one of the largest used book sales in the U.S.

We have over 30+ categories of affordable books including 25,000+ children’s books priced to sell.

MOVE-IN NIGHT - Volunteers are also needed - May 9th.

Volunteers < age 18 need parent or guardian supervision.
