Where to donate English paperback books and videos

Does anyone in the Zurich area have suggestions on where I could donate good condition English paperback books? I think I have missed to boat for the St Andrew's Church sale.

I also have many videotapes that I am wondering what to do with (James Bond series, Friends, Sex and the City etc.)

thanks!

I take mine to Buecher Brocky - it's just across the road from Zurich Enge train station. You can also drop off videos dvds.

The Salvation Army will happily take books. If you call them up, they will arrange a convenient time with you and come and pick them up from your place.

The library does take English books. I saw some in the Central branch. Not sure about video tapes. I have recycled mine in the E-Tram.
