Washington, DC

“Dear PoPville,

I’m a writer and my books have been translated into several foreign languages. These editions get mailed to my house, and while it’s nice to keep a copy or two of each, I don’t need 5 or 6. I can’t bring myself to throw them away, but I’m not sure where to donate them. So, any ideas? Is there a local charity or agency or business that takes foreign-language editions of books? If it helps, they’re popular science books, written for a general audience.

I should note that I’ve already donated all the extra Spanish editions, so I’m fine there. Otherwise I have books in French, Italian, German, Hebrew, Korean, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, Turkish, Czech, Estonian, and Japanese.

Thanks, People o’ PoP!”
