Free Encyclopedias
« on: November 26, 2018, 06:47:14 AM »
Not sure if this is the right thing to do in this section of the forum but I need help disposing of a full set of Encyclopedia Britannica.

If there was space in the house it would be nice to keep them but there isn't, so they've got to go.
I'm not keen on sticking them on EBay but would like any ideas of how to donate them or get rid without just dumping them into a recycler. It seems like a hell of a waste but they really must go and the sooner the better.

I'd even deliver then within 40 miles of Oldham If someone could/would take them off our hands. Any ideas please? Thanks.

Try posting an ad on Gumtree:

Lots of suggestions here:

I would just list them as free for whoever wants to collect them on Gumtree, Freegle and Freecycle. There might be an appropriate Facebook group too. If no one wants them call a charity shop or school or library and say you'll deliver.
