Our library is very small, but we're happy to have one in walking distance. We support it through late fees (oops!) and donations of books and magazines.
Clean out the magazine basket/box and drop the donation off at the library.
If I haven't read the magazines from November yet, I probably won't. So rather than make magazine reading feel like old-school homework, we'll start the year anew with an empty magazine basket, and the library will reap the profit. Our library sells donated magazines. All proceeds go back into the library for things like books to be placed in circulation for us all.
Check with YOUR library for any guidelines. Clearly, any donations must be...ahem...family-friendly. And our library requires that they be no more than three months old.
Sure - out with the old for our house, in with a new supply for our library "bookstore."
