History of Book Finders

In 1960, the AAUW Corpus Christi Branch held its first book sale in an old Chaparral Street office building and cleared $134.04. The annual AAUW Used Book Sale became one of the Branch’s most successful projects.  Today, donated books from all over the Coastal Bend are classified, priced, and sold at AAUW Book Sales about every three months.  Proceeds support scholarships to TAMUCC and Del Mar College students; local libraries; the Branch; and women’s activities.
