Anyone know of any programs that would take old textbooks? These are way too old to sell on Amazon but I hate to just toss them. Any area libraries or schools take old college books??

You can donate them to Spotlight Books on Tidewater Drive in Norfolk (next to the Foodbank). It runs a job training program for low income people and takes all book donations. Their website address is spotlightbooks.net.

I'm the same way... I hate to just throw things away. I've always just donated old text books to CHKD or Goodwill.
