Anyone knows where to donate old story books? They are very old and yellowish kind.

I bring my old Enid Blyton books (as in my books bought by my father when I was in primary school in the 80s), my children's books and old/unworn clothes to my church. Church-goers who are keen help themselves to the books. Else the books will be sold by volunteers to raise funds for church.

Salvation Army Box?

If you want to sell you could even try Bras Brasah. They sell a lot of those!!

You can also consider bringing them to the public libraries. There will be one shelf catered to these donated books. Ayone can pick up any books on the shelf.

Even magazines are ok.

Where? Because English books may not be useful to them. Also, books are heavy!
