I have a few years worth of woodworking magazines (WOOD, ShopNotes, Woodsmith) from the past couple of years that I’d like to give someone. No cost to you, just have to come pick it up ASAP as we are packing up for a possible move. See the image, you can have the binders/plastic sheets they’re in as well.

No takers? If nobody wants them I’ll probably be recycling them over the weekend. It’d be a shame to just throw them all away.

Matt – perhaps there is a school in your area with shop classes & they might like them…

I dispose of my old magazines by taking them to doctor’s offices when visiting and also donate them to hospitals. I figure if I can expose someone to woodworking through a magazine. I started doing this when I got tired of having only 3 year old copies of Newsweek and Sports Illustrated to read during a doctor visit. Any place where there is a waiting room is a good place to drop off some magazines.

Thanks for the suggestions, will look into it. Do libraries take magazine donations?

Yes they do and put them on a shelf for free taking.

Matt….I can tell you that the Bartlett library takes them. Lived in Bartlett for 20 years, and when we moved away in 2012, gave them a ton of books and mags.

Have you contacted the VA hospital near you? The library in mine takes the magazines and welcomes their use.

Have your say...
