Because of the dedicated readers of Las Vegas and surrounding communities, the Las Vegas branch of the AAUW was able to hold another successful used book sale, this year at the Sala de Madrid. Thank you. Thanks also, to the Optic, especially Art Trujillo and Mercy Lopez, for the informative coverage, to Margaret Gonzales at Highlands for her assistance and to Highlands University for the use of the Sala during the two-day sale, and to UWC-USA for storage space at U-7.
The hard work of friends and AAUW members, as well as UWC and HU helpers and staff, makes this event possible, raising funds from the sale of these donated books that go directly to scholarships. These scholarships are intended to encourage women who are non-traditional students, often single parents, to complete their education, after which they are able to give back to the community.
We hope to see our friends and supporters and readers of all sorts at the summer book sale, to be held again at the Sala de Madrid. Watch for the dates to be announced.
