The AAUW Bookstore closed in February at it’s location in the Buffalo Mall. Since that time members have been working to find a new solution to our location problem. Plans are in the works to relocate to a new location hopefully by April. The plan is to cooperate with another volunteer run business and operate a joint store in a new location. Plans are being made so stay tuned for updates as progress continues.
The permanent book store was started by branch member, Ruth Kraft, who had a passion for books and people. The store is now managed, in her memory, by branch member, Kelly Krein and a staff of very dedicated volunteers.
All proceeds from the book store are used to support branch philanthropy projects including the AAUW Educational Fund, Jamestown College AAUW Endowment Fund, AAUW Legal Advocacy Fund, Tech Savvy and other community minded projects in the Jamestown area that support the AAUW mission such as the Alfred Dickey Library, The Arts Center, and Frontier Village School House.
