Where can I donate books to???
The thrift store
Your local library… Good will or salvation army, prison….senior centers
I donate my books to my library
Try a shelter for abused women, or a homeless shelter.
Shelter, goodwill, local library
Prisons, library book stores, many nonprofit agencies have drop-in centers that can use them (my wife works in mental health and has set up libraries at two of her agencies with donated books).
Paperback exchange. Com
Please ask the library if they will accept the donations before you assume they will take them. Libraries usually look for materials that are current (example: some books listed Pluto as a planet and it’s no longer classified as one), in good condition (we’ve received some with spider webs and roach poop before), and that they don’t already have. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve had to try to figure out what to do with donations we couldn’t use.
The college library has a take one/leave one rack there at the top of the stairs. I’ve loaded tons of books into that. I know Goodwill & the Salvation Army takes them, I’ve gotten a TON from there.
Me!! Lol. Jk. A lof of public schools are always happy to get books. You can contact them. Or your local library.
Little free library, your regular library, women’s shelters?

I don’t know where you are from, but in our town we have a literacy guild that operates a book store where you can donate books for resale. Then they take the money for the books and help adults learn to read. That’s who I donate my books to.
Hospitals, Senior Citizens facility and library
@Henrietta we tried to do that once and they only would accept brand new books… the cheek!
Libraries, thrift stores, hospitals, senior centres, depending on the content centers for kids, etc.
Drop them at the library
Good will. The library. Schools. Friends.
Public library, goodwill/thrift stores, or little free libraries (if you have one of those near you).
Salvation Army, ….Library,
Prisons are in need of books. They are some of the last to get any.
High schools and elementary schools always take in any books that are being donated. Sadly, so many schools are unable to build up their literary sections because they don’t have enough funding. I donate most of my books to local high schools that are in dire need of books.
