    I would donate them to a nursing home/assisted living center.

    You could recycle them into lamps and sell them.

    E bay or Goodwill

    I have been in three rehab/nursing centers following back and hip surgeries, and very few of the residents read. I would approach an assisted living condo group. Also, a used bookstore might give you $ for them or exchange for a publication you want.
    When my father died in 1952, he had over 800 lb. of Life magazines alone, and my mother sold them to a man who bought paper. Back then nobody recycled anything.

      I have approached several nursing homes and assisted living groups, none were interested as you said. Still wanting to do a DIY project with them. Thanks for the reply.

    Donate them to a library or to Goodwill. Take a tax deduction either way.

    I'm 100% behind DIY and craft projects (especially reusing and upcycling things) but 200+ volumes in such great condition could bring so much joy to those living in nursing homes or shelters....I suggested it because I thought the educational and entertainment value outweighed the "craft" value of these wonderful volumes.
