Subject: Looking for info on donating books/serials to other countries

Hi all, I need a little help!

I've got a patron who would like to donate the entire collection
(books, magazines, textbooks) from a recently closed elementary
school/middle school (they built a new building and got all new books!!),
to schools or libraries who cannot afford new books.  The patron seems to
think these would be best used in developing nations, but...

Does anyone know of organizations that would apppreciate the donation?
I'm told there are about 10,000 volumes, but I don't have any more
details than I've given.

Please reply to me directly at  since I don't think this
is likely to be of general interest to the list.

Thanks in advance for your help!
