AAUW’s annual Used Book Sale is an Ann Arbor institution; in 2013 it had gross sales of more than $36,000 and every penny earned, after expenses, went to support local and national scholarships.  The 62nd annual book sale will be held on September 5 – 7, 2014 in the Morris Lawrence Building at Washtenaw Community College.  Mark your calendar now!


Make a Difference!  Learn New Things!
Make 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.

The Ann Arbor Branch offers

  • A group of educated women with diverse backgrounds and experiences
    • Informative and stimulating monthly programs
    • More than 35 small interest groups covering a wide range of topics and activities
    • A used book sale that raises money for national fellowships, local scholarships, and awards to graduating high school seniors
    • Community outreach activities like Brains Rule! and Let’s Read Math
    • Membership in national and state AAUW organizations                               


Ann Arbor Branch President,  Mary Rea, welcomes new  members at the fall open house and interest  group sign up.



Open House, Wednesday, September 17, 2014, Ann Arbor City Club,   7 pm

The annual open house is a time for returning members to meet old friends and sign up for study groups, while new and prospective members have the chance to find out who we are and what we do.  We hope you’ll join us at the Ann Arbor City Club, 1830 Washtenaw Avenue, for an evening of fun and camaraderie.
