The American Association of University Women (AAUW) has started collecting donations for its annual fall book sale.
AAUW Book Sale co-chairman Terry Reynolds said the book sale has occurred for over 60 years.
The money raised goes back into the community for scholarships and to local schools and libraries.
Last year’s book sale raised over $24,000.
“The community has been super generous in donating books to us,” Reynolds said. “They read them, give them back to us, we’ll sell them again. It’s a good recycle program.”
Tuesday was the first day of book collections and Reynolds said they already received at least 1,000 books.
“I think it’s grown because we’ve been able to be so much more organized. We discovered the more we organize, the more money we make.”
Books can be dropped off at the back of the Great Falls Public Library (301 2nd Avenue North) every Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. through the end of September.
The AAUW book sale will be held in October for 10 days.
