Another book donation update

I’ve heard three different reports now that shelters are overwhelmed with books, and that sending them is not only not useful but also logistically difficult. I’m going to keep the collection sites on this book donation list whom I haven’t specifically heard have stopped accepting books listed, but those who want to help might want to consider the groups there (such as the LLA, ABA, and IRA) that are seeking book-related monetary donations instead.

ETA: Or, alternately, send books or money someplace locally that can it, instead. Here in Tucson, one could do far worse than to support Make Way For Books, say. Most other cities probably have other groups that are also doing literacy and reading work.
