Good Morning:

We have a prison in the neighboring town and I send all the Time,
NEwsweek, US News & World REport, Sport Illustrated, Sport, Inside
Sport, Readers Digest that are given to us, to the prison library.
We have a shuttle, so I can send it without cost.

Sometimes nursing homes, with an activity center, will have a use for
old magazines.

If all else fails,  RECYCLE!!!

Good Luck,

          An appreciated gesture would be to donate them to a nursing
          home.  They could be used for activities.

Two suggestions:
        Offer them on Backserv for other libraries who might be able to
use some/all issues to fill in gaps;
        Contact the used/duplicates periodical dealer(s), e.g., America
Periodicals (Philadelphia), Jaeger (New York), Royoung (New York) and see
if they might be interested in purchasing back runs that are complete.
