Info Request: Contact Info for Portland Area Books for Prisoners

Looking for person(s) interested in free books for any number of purposes.
Hello to anyone in the Portland area!

I work at a certain world-famous local bookstore. We recycle hundreds of books each week that could be going to more useful causes, such as books for prisoners, or free spaces that might be interested. The books are dumped and re-pulped. However, we employees are able to take whatever free books we like and dispose of them as we like.

While recycling the paper is great, what about recycling the text. Please respond and let me know if there is anyone or anywhere that would be interested in these books. They are a random assortment but sometimes can be quite good.

Just respond to the post and I'll check back on it!
