For 22 years, the Alexandria Area Branch of American Association of University Women (AAUW) and District 206 Community Education have joined efforts to put books in the hands of young people through "Project Bookshelf."


Donations of new children's books are collected and redistributed through the local Jingle Bells program. Monetary donations are also welcome, and enable the group to purchase appropriate books in quantity at a discount.
