Elmhurst Branch Philanthropic Activities
For over 50 years, the Elmhurst Area Branch has sponsored an annual Used Book Sale. This is our primary fund raising 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 and programs on the national level as well as scholarships at the local level. The 2016 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
- Half the Sky
