Hardbacks and DVDs will cost $2 each, and paperbacks, tapes and records will cost $1 each.

All proceeds will fund the Ruth Houston Memorial Scholarship, a $1,000 stipend that is awarded to an MTSU student each semester.

“AAUW Murfreesboro has been awarding scholarships to MTSU students since the 1960s,” said Dr. Ayne Cantrell, AAUW member and MTSU professor emerita.

“The book sale is our only fundraiser for the scholarship.”
