DKG Takes Over Annual Book Sale

DKG Takes Over Annual Book Sale

Members of Delta Kappa Gamma (from left) Sharon Osborne, Tonya Zinter, Kathy DeGroot, Madeleine Carlson, Virginia Doerr, Sue Jerde, Dee Zahn, and Marie Schumacher organize the donated books at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church.

The 2021 Delta Kappa Gamma (DKG) Book Sale will take place from Sept. 9 through 11 at the Wylie Park Pavilion. The proceeds go toward funding at least two college scholarships for young educators.

The Epsilon Chapter of DKG in Aberdeen is an organization that promotes both personal and professional growth and excellence of women educators. DKG partnered with the Aberdeen Association of University Women (AAUW) for the book sale two years ago but now takes full responsibility for this substantial fundraiser.

In the previous sales, DKG received between 15,000 to 25,000 books. With the number of books already collected and sorted this year, the organization believes they may have over 25,000 books for this year’s sale. The starting prices are as low as 10 cents, and books will be organized by genre for easy shopping.

“The Aberdeen community is to be complimented on their part of this partnership. Without all the wonderful books and the customers who faithfully buy from us, the scholarships would not be possible!” DKG member Sharon Osborne said. //

Drop-off locations include Kessler’s, Ken’s SuperFair Food, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, and Bethlehem Lutheran Church. For larger donations, call Dee Zahn at 605-225-6713.
