I appreciate the thinking behind reluctance to send weeded books to charities but a blanket statement is not appropriate either.
I work in a K-2 library which has not been weeded for a very long time.
The books I am pulling off are often in excellent condition, simply unsuitable for my young readers.
Other titles which do not appeal to my girls-only audience, or duplicates of titles which have not remained popular, sit untouched and do not merit shelf space in this particular library. They might be quite suitable for other readers in other libraries.

Saying that weeded books should never be passed on is as helpful as saying that weeded books should always be passed on. As professionals we are capable of making informed decisions.
I'm delighted that my recently weeded books may be of use to someone in need.
