Boy Scout arranges mechanism to donate books to homeless shelter in MD
WJLA7 (Sinclair) reports that a Boy Scout in Montgomery County, MD has donated (probably by getting donations first) about 2000 books to a homeless shelter (not sure if it is in DC or MD).
It looks very much like I will do a downsizing and household move soon, and some older books could be donated. But many are policy books and of a nature not likely to work well in a shelter. But it’s a definitely a good idea to consider.
But I would definitely keep the 1950 set of World Book Encyclopedias, with their wonderful elevation maps of all the states and Canadian provinces. They've never reinstated them in later versions. I don't know why. These were a favorite in my high school days.
