There’s still time to buy an ad in this year’s Branch Directory!
An ad in the print version of the Ann Arbor Branch Directory helps the branch by offsetting the cost of printing and mailing the booklet. It helps you by giving you an economical way to reach hundreds of business, professional women, homemakers, and retirees in the area. Ad prices range from only $35 for a 1/4 page ad to $60 for 1/2 page and $95 for a full page, and also include the opportunity to display your product or service at AAUW meetings. The deadline for the 2015-16 Directory is August 31. For more information, contact Mary Mostaghim (or visit the Contact Us page and send a message to “NCCWSL”).
Book Sale News
It’s an Ann Arbor tradition! Every September booklovers, young and old, flock to the huge AAUW used book sale. They come on Friday to pick out the best books. They come on Saturday for the half-priced books, and they come again on Sunday to fill countless grocery bags with still more books.
This year’s book sale will take place on September 11-13, 2015 in the Morris Lawrence Building at Washtenaw Community College. You’ll find all the details on the Book Sale page. Mark your calendar now!

Learn New Things! Meet New Friends! Have Fun!
Just over 110 years ago a small group of women graduates in Ann Arbor gathered together to form the Ann Arbor Branch of the Association of Collegiate Alumni – the forerunner of AAUW. Today we are a vibrant, active group of some 300 intellectually curious women, devoted to improving the lives of women and girls through education. Along the way we manage to improve our own lives – and have a lot of fun. We welcome new members.
