Dear PoP – Donate Old books?

“Dear PoP,

Do or your readers have any suggestions for what I can do with a ton of old books? They’re not valuable by any means — we’re talking outdated reference books and Kitty Kelley biographies. I don’t even want to dump them on Goodwill or Salvation Army because I doubt they’d even be able to sell them. I just hate to toss them in the garbage. I might try Freecycle to see if anyone wants them there, but wanted to check with you first. Are there any organizations out there that could use these books, even if just for materials?”

Does anyone know if Books for America takes donations? Oh dang, they are actually pretty selective about what they accept. The library accepts some donations as well. Where would you guys recommend items like these be donated?
