      Dollars for Scholars Sale of Used Books

      The Wilmington branch of the American Association of University Women is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its sale of used books to fund college scholarships for women and is also preparing for a new chapter in its behind-the-scenes operations.
      The Dollars for Scholars Used Book Sale runs Friday-Sunday, Feb. 22-24, 2019, at Concord Mall, 4737 Concord Pike, Brandywine Hundred, DE 19803. To mark the 50th year, all mass-market paperbacks will be just 50 cents.
      The sale has come a long way over the years, from $320 in revenue the first year to supporting $60,000 to $100,000 in scholarships each year today.
      Leaders of the branch and its book room committee are working to reduce expenses to continue the sale. Information about free or low-cost space in the Wilmington area is desired and should be sent to aauwwilm@gmail.com. Volunteers interested in helping during the sale and collecting, sorting, pricing and boxing donations the rest of the year are asked to email aauwwilm@gmail.com.

Most items are $1 to $5, with collectibles up to $100. Items are sorted into more than 50 categories on tables throughout the mall. The sale also includes audio books, DVDs, CDs, sheet music, puzzles, and ephemera. This year there are large selections of collectibles, literature, history, children’s and local-interest books.
      All day Saturday, Feb. 23, children’s books are half price. Starting at 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23, most items are half price. On Sunday, Feb. 24, people can fill a $10 bag with their favorites.
