[Library Media] Weeding Question

We have done different things with our books after weeding.  The former
librarian liked to put them on a cart the last week of school as a
giveaway.  Others have been taken to D.I., recycled, or given to students
that need books.

This year, I was just approached by a new non-profit here in Enoch (or at
least they should be getting their non-profit status this month) called
Pets Furever which is a local animal rescue/foster program working with our
local animal shelters.  I don't know much about them as I was just
introduced to them recently.  They would like to start a summer reading
program where children can read books to dogs.  I am thinking of donating
my old weeded books to them.
