AAUW State College Holds 60th Used Book Sale | Center County Gazette

Shoppers search for favorites and bargains during the 2021 sale.

UNIVERSITY PARK — AAUW State College will hold its 60th annual used book sale from May 14-17 at the Snider Agricultural Arena, diagonally across from Beaver Stadium on Park Avenue on the Penn State University Park campus. The sale runs daily from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.

More than 150,000 books, priced to sell, will be for sale. The books are divided into 30 different categories, including art, biography, children, collectors, fiction, history, hobbies, humor and pop culture, literature, mystery, science and technology, sports, travel, and more.

Textbooks are limited to books less than five years old.

Monday, May 16 is Half Price Day, and Tuesday, May 17, will be Bag Day, when a bag of books can be purchased for $8. Shoppers are allowed to bring their own bag to fill. Credit cards are accepted all four days of the sale.

As a reminder to shoppers, safety regulations limit the total number of people in the Snider Agricultural Arena to 450 people at any one time.

This protects the shopper’s safety and increases the shopping pleasure. While many shoppers tend to come first on Saturday mornings, a wide selection of books is available throughout the four days.

Building perimeters may not be used by customers for temporary storage.

AAUW State College will be accepting book donations beginning Tuesday, June 14 at 2197 High Tech Rd, State College (opposite the airport). Items that can and cannot be accepted are listed under Book Donation Information on the AAUW State College website.

Used book sales are made possible by generous donations of books from the community. Sales profits support scholarships for returning adult female students and scholarships for community projects and programs that reflect AAUW’s mission to promote equality for women and girls.
