I would keep the books that I use as reference. I would pull out the ones that were worth at least $10/used and sell them on amazon. The rest would be donated to the local friends of the library so they could resell them and give the money to the library.
I would get the tapes digitized at some point so they are more accessible, but I would still keep the originals for their history. I have 3 bankers boxes filled with stuff I did as a kid.... sketchbooks, audiotapes of the band, old school workbooks, yearbooks, ticket stubs, report cards (reading the teacher comments is always good for a laugh). I don't think it takes up that much space, as long as it is organized like that, and it is fun to go through the actual artifacts now and then.
