Former Jerusalem Mayor Teddy Kollek, 87, is ready to move into an old-age home, but first has to find a library to take his collection of over 5,000 books.

"The oldest ones are in German," said the Austrian-born Kollek. "Nobody wants them nowadays."Kollek, who served as mayor from 1965 to 1993, wants to leave his fourth-floor walk-up in Jerusalem because he can no longer climb stairs easily.
