Books to donate

Salaams all,

I have a lot of Islamic books to donate as I have duplicates of many of them. Do you know of anywhere that I could send them?

Thanks in advance.

No, there is nowhere local that could take them.

You could make a craigslist ad about them, they have a catergory called "free" under the "for sale" section. So post your ad there. Someone who is interested will pick them up and you'll be helping someone in return. Win-Win situation.

@Shia in Massachusetts Please do not do that. It would not be a good idea to let others know you have Shia books or even Islamic books. Some people might want to get them and burn them. Wait until you meet a real Shia who could use the books.

I still think the best option is to donate to a Shia center. If there are none near you, contact ones that are farther away and ask if they can pick up the books or pay for shipping. 

I would be reluctant to just drop the books into the general public, because they might contain words and names that the public doesn't know to respect.

Could you drop your email in case someone is able to take the books in the future?

Asalamu laykum brother. I am a shia in New York. If any of your books are in English or Urdu I would benefit greatly from them. Otherwise al khoei center in nyc is one of the largest in the region and they could benefit from a donation, other centers are al mahdi center in Brooklyn nyc. There is also some centers in New Jersey as well as maryland
