AAUW Used Book Sale Reopens for its 55th Season

By Lori Draz

Just as students everywhere return to the classroom, the AAUW Northern Monmouth County Branch is pleased to announce that its Used Book Sale is open again for the 55th year. The weekly sale returns to its home at Old First Church, 69 Kings Highway in Middletown.

The dedicated volunteers of the AAUW always compile a richly varied collection of books and other items. You’ll find fiction and non-fiction new releases (2021 and 2022), hardcover and paperback, cookbooks, biographies, plus Antiquarian books and selections for young readers from children’s preschool books including board books and picture books through young adult. The AAUW Used Book Sale also has a big selection of DVDs, CDs and books on tape as well as records from all vintages. There’s even games and puzzles available.

The sale is open every Saturday from 9 am to 1 pm, except for holiday weekends. Masks are optional, and social distancing is encouraged.

If you would like to share some of your titles, book donations can be made on Thursdays from 10 to 11:30 am and on Saturdays from 9 am to 12:30 pm. Guidelines for making tax-deductible donations can be found on the group’s website at or by calling 732-275-2237.

All net proceeds provide scholarships for women at Brookdale Community College and Monmouth University.

The Northern Monmouth County Branch of AAUW has been making a difference in the community for more than 90 years and welcomes new members to join them in advancing equity for women and girls.
