Help!! I need books!

I am the English teacher at a mental health facility in Oklahoma. When setting up the contract between the public school district and the hospital, it was agreed that the district would provide teachers and textbooks while the hospital provides the facilities. A Library fell right in the middle, with neither party providing a library. The school has been here several years and it is my first year here (I've taught 18 years). I have spent a great deal of my own money to provide books for my students. How can I expect them to love reading and become truly literate if all they have to read is textbooks? Therefore, I am requesting from all you Mylotters a donation of any unwanted books (in English) you may have that would be appropriate for ages 6-18. Remember these students are in a mental health facility but there are a lot of good books out there. If you have any to donate or if you know of somewhere I can go, please contact me at: Happy Mylotting!! Thanks.
