One very good option would be Better World Books:

Here is their Library donation page:

They are an excellent company to work with.  We used them for a great
number of titles that were duplicates and not transferred to the main
University Library when the Kresge Business Administration lost our space
for the print collection last year.

The real issue with books - and finding a good home for a disbanded
collection - is the cost associated with shipping the material.  While we
would love to be able to send these to libraries that are in desperate need
for books (especially overseas), the cost is huge to ship books - making
the donation difficult to carry out.

Hope this helps.  Feel free to write me directly if you have any questions.

Best - Corey
