A preview night is scheduled for 3 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31, for people who want to get first choice of the books and other items. For this night only, the cost will be $10.

Besides books, there will be LPs, CDs, DVDs, puzzles and games.

Sailing lessons

AAUW Racine sponsored middle school girls in sailing classes at the Racine Yacht Club again this summer.

The sponsorship is part of AAUW’s commitment to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).

The classes teach the girls to sail in a safe, fun environment; STEM is applied through sailing fundamentals, nautical terminology, knot tying, basic dinghy rigging, understanding how pulleys work on a boat, and how wind direction and wind speed affect the sails.
