What Can I Do With Old Encyclopedias?

I would like to sell a set of 1985 Collier encyclopedias or find a good home for them. Any suggestions?

If you want to give them to a good casue you could try a local boys/girls club. Or a church even, especially one with an after school program.

Do you have a ronald mcdonald house by you or a children's hospital, maybe a shriner's hospital All 3 would be glad to have them. These places have to have the children there for extended periods of time, most of the children have to do schooling at the hospital.

Check E-Bay, they might be collectibles. I remember having that set as a child.

As a former teacher, I say call your local elementary school and ask if they would be interested in using them. They could be used in the library or the classroom or even in the art room for projects.

Take them to your local library. Even if that branch doesn't need them they will pass them along to another branch or a charity.
