I used to work in our local library. We'd accept donations, but to be frank, much of it was often too old and tatty, or very out of date non-fiction, or else titles we already had enough of.
Sometimes quite a bit of it would sadly be binned. It was largely stuff charity shops wouldn't want either - too tatty or otherwise unsaleable.
We often had to 'weed' our shelves anyway, to make room for new stock. Any saleable donations that we couldn't use for whatever reason, would go on our 'for sale' shelf, with our own weedings.
