College Women’s Club of Montclair used Book Sale POSTPONED
With a great deal of regret, we must postpone our Spring 2020 book sale, due to ongoing health concerns about COVID-19 and following CDC and government recommendations. We feel strongly that protecting our community – our volunteers and our customers – is the most important priority we have right now. Please check our web site for updates (cwcmontclair.com) or call 973-783-7040 for the recorded message. At the moment we hope to reschedule in early June. Our scholarships, which depend on our book sale revenue, are on hold as well. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy!

The major project of the College Women's Club of Montclair, Inc. is the Book Sale, which raises money for scholarships. Each year the club provides aid to graduating high school girls from the public high schools of Montclair, Glen Ridge, Verona and Cedar Grove for their college education. The club has awarded over a million dollars in scholarships to girls in Montclair and the surrounding area since its inception over 81 years ago. It supports the AAUW Education Foundation, which helps women reach their personal and professional goals through a series of fellowships and grants.
We rent Book Sale Headquarters in the basement of the Technopulp Building at 26 Park Street in Montclair, NJ, all year. We take donations of used Books, CDs, DVDs, LPs, Audio Tapes, Sheet Music, Software, Ephemera from area residents during the year, usually Saturdays from 9:30 am until 11:45 am. We collect Books from May through August and again from December through February. The Book Sales take place in November and April. We post our schedules on Baristanet.com, Patch.com, the jerseytomatopress.com and feature it on the Montclair Watercooler, the Montclair Times and the Montclair Local.
Our Book Sales allow us to create a substantial number of scholarships each year. For the 2018-2019 year we gave out $36,000 to 18 area high school senior girls. Quite impressive results for selling all those books for $.50, $1 and $2!!! We sold them but you donated them - many thanks!
