My weeded books are first offered to teachers for classroom libraries, to
the art teacher for altered books or collages then placed in a box for
students to rifle through then to the recycle bin.

I hadn't thought about misinformation in non-fiction...I think I'll add an
age addendum to my policy...thanks Joseph.
