According to Author Stephen King, "Books are a uniquely portable magic." Those who would like to give some of that magic away, may want to consider checking out the big Holiday Book Sale being held at the Neyland Library (1230 Carmel Pkwy.) this weekend.
The local chapter of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) organizes the sale at various times throughout the year as a way of offering scholarships to local college students. The group also engages in various community projects, and uses part of the proceeds to benefit Corpus Christi Public Libraries.
The sale will take place November 16th through 18th from 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM, with a variety of unique books offered in dozens of categories. Shelves are stocked nightly and prices start as low as $2.
Those who have books they might like to donate are asked to contact Betty Maroney at (361) 991-4612 or just drop by the library.
Since the group's founding in 1881, members of the AAUW have examined and taken positions on the fundamental educational, social, economic, and political issues of the day. It is an organization that bills itself as the nation's leading voice promoting equity and education for women and girls. There are more than 1,000 AAUW branches across the country, including one here in Corpus Christi, which began in 1927.
