Holiday Party

Join us for a festive evening of holiday cheer. This year the party will be held at Sally Schuster’s home. View holiday collections which include ornaments from the late 1800s through the 1960s. This year Sally will decorate a tree with Italian ornaments from the 1950s and 60s along with a Santa tree and a travel tree.

Members whose last names begin with A-L bring a dessert; those with last names which begin with M-Z bring an appetizer. A $5 fee will cover beverages and other incidentals.

AAUW Elmhurst Area Branch is dedicated to the AAUW mission
of advancing equity for women and girls
through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research.

Visitors and prospective members are welcome to all of our meetings.  If you are interested in joining our branch, please come to one of our meetings and ask for a membership application.

Elmhurst Branch Philanthropic Activities

For over 50 years, the Elmhurst Area Branch has sponsored an annual Used Book Sale. This is our primary philanthropic activity. The sale is usually held the first Thursday-Sunday in August at an Elmhurst school. The proceeds from this sale are used to fund AAUW research, grants and scholarships for women on the national and local level. The 2015 Book Sale was another resounding success, raising funds for scholarships and providing an inexpensive place for the community to shop for a complete range of books.

Elmhurst Branch Activities

The Branch has general meetings on the second Wednesday of the month from September through May.  Programs begin at 7:00 p.m. and are usually held at the Elmhurst Public Library.  For details on this year’s program line up, see the Program page.

In the summer, our members are actively involved in preparing for the Annual Used Book Sale. Volunteers are always welcome.

The Branch also has a number of special study groups.  These currently include:

    • Book Discussion Group
    • Noontime Potpourri of  Ideas Discussion Group
    • Half the Sky
