-A A +A

Thanks to the dedicated readers of Las Vegas and surrounding communities, the AAUW Annual Used Book Sale was another success.  
Thank you, also, to the Optic for its coverage, to Margaret Gonzales for her assistance and to Highlands University for the use of the Student Center lobby during the two-day sale, and to UWC-USA  for storage space at U-7. We were very happy on Saturday to see teens picking out great reads and the many children carrying out their special sack of books to read at home. The hard work of friends and AAUW members, as well as UWC and HU helpers, makes this event possible, raising funds from the sale of these donated books that go directly to scholarships. If you know of or are a woman who is a nontraditional student attending NMHU full time, please contact Sandra Trujillo or Dorothy Bales on the Highlands campus to find out more about scholarship assistance through this AAUW program.

The next AAUW book sale will be later this year at U-7. We’ll see you then!
