Yes, you need to know what the policies of the District are. Some have the requirement the they be sold to the public – hence the 50-cent Book Sale at so many libraries. I have clearance from our District offices to distribute them if I so decide. So – I trash the Non-Fiction (because of the possibility of miss-information) after having the cover removed from the book, so that I don’t get it back. The fiction and picture books I will put out for students to take, knowing that some of my students do not have home libraries. After a week or so, those remaining also go the way of the recycling bin.

Hi All!
          I have been weeding out books from my library and feel guilty about getting rid of them.  I was planning on giving them to our local thrift shop or Deseret Industries, but was wondering if there are any other options out there.  What do you do with your old books?  Keep in mind these are REALLY old, most haven’t been checked out since 1999 or earlier.
          Thanks in advance for your help!!
