The Sauk Foundation will sponsor the annual Association of University Women’s (AAUW) Annual Used Book Sale from 2:30 to 9 p.m. on Friday, October 23; 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 24; and noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday, October 25, at the Northland Mall in Sterling.

The sale will feature used books in all shapes, sizes, and categories from paperback to hardcover, romance to suspense, historical to cooking, children’s books, and more.

Proceeds from the sale will now go toward scholarships for female Sauk students including Sauk’s Single Parent Grant Program. The Sauk Foundation will continue the AAUW’s goal of the sale in which proceeds help fund scholarships for women.  The AAUW’s Sauk Valley area branch, which has contributed funds to different Sauk scholarships, is disbanding after 63 years,.

The SVCC Foundation is a non-profit corporation that helps to broaden the educational opportunities and services that SVCC provides for its students. The SVCC Foundation funds numerous scholarships for Sauk students that total more than $160,000 annually.
