ELMHURST – The American Association of University Women Elmhurst Area Branch is collecting books and media for its annual sale.

The branch has set out yellow collection barrels for donations in both Addison and Elmhurst.

The group is looking for used books, CDs and DVDs to sell at its annual Used Book Sale, which will take place July 31 through Aug. 3 at Lincoln Elementary School, 565 S. Fairfield Ave., Elmhurst.

Donations help provide grants and college scholarships at both the local and national level.

Last year’s sale offered 35,000 donated books. The association is hoping to top that achievement with additional donations this year, according to an organization news release.

To get more information or schedule a special pickup of donations, call 630-833-0381 or email info@aauwelmhurst.org.

Books and media can be dropped off in barrels at the following locations:

• Elmhurst Public Library at 125 S. Prospect Ave.

• Courts Plus at 186 SW Ave.

• Jewel Osco at 944 S. York Road

• Jewel Osco at 153 Schiller St.

• Caputo’s at 510 W. Lake St. in Addison.
