Selling Encyclopedias

I have a 25 volume set of Britanica encyclopedias. I want to get rid of them, but don't know exactly where or to whom I should sell them. Any suggestions?

Hi - It is sad but you may find it difficult to even give this set away. Most libraries will not even take them for a book sale as very few people will even look at a set anymore.

You might try Craig's list or Free Cycle as they would be very expensive (and a lot of trouble) to ship a set like this.
Some people use them for crafts.

Probably nobody wants them but your local recycling company might recycle them.

The only value old encyclopedias have is sentimental value. Even the thrift stores won't take them as a donation.

The previous posters are very correct. Try to find someone who will want them for crafts to give them to. No one will pay you for them.
