    If you are on Facebook, a lot of areas have "swap boards" for a more localized version of Craigslist. You could always try and sell/giveaway there.

    I ended up taking the boxes to the Goodwill... a lot of the links to "where to donate books" end up as dead ends.
    Im hoping if they have books they cant use, that they have better contacts with where to donate them.

    In our city in NZ we have little free street libraries (wood house shaped boxes with a door) called Lilliput Libraries. The books are free to take with the idea that you donate one later. I looked up and found a US equivalent is Little Free Libraries and there are lots all over that you could donate books to next time you have some.

    NZ_Mama, I saw one of those when I visited my parents a few years ago. Such a cute idea. I feel like it would be emptied out in two seconds around where we live. Maybe that's why we don't have any...
    I'm a homeschooling enthusiast excited to start an epic 1st grade-ish year with DD4 and DD2 tagging along. My homeschool superpower is ferreting out secular science resources.

    My site is somerandomlady.com and these are curriculum choices..

    I run a homeschool fun based coop and we do a giant book / curriculum exchange once a year. Whatever is left gets taken to Goodwill. Maybe your charter group would want to do the same?

    Yes I think that happens sometimes! I know our local one was looking a bit sad for a while, but they always seem to get filled again. We have two large second hand book sales here every year, one where the library sells off excess stock and one where people donate books to a local theatre to sell for a fundraiser. So I think many people have a good stock of books they have picked up cheap and the Lilliput Libraries are a convenient way to pass them on.
