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.  Bookstore volunteers are needed to work daily. We have two shifts available from 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM and from 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM.  For more information or to volunteer please contact Kelly Krein at 701-252-4690 or email kkrein@lloydsmotors.com
