Books We Do Not Need

SOME THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND...

  • We do not need Bibles or Christian non-fiction books, as they are provided by prison pastors.

  • No prison will accept a book with spiral binding or with underlining or writing in it. If there is a name written on the front page, it can be blacked out or the page can be torn out.

  • Out of respect for the inmates, we do not send books which are musty, stained, or outdated.

  • We cannot use encyclopedias or travel guides, or heavy hardback textbooks.

  • Before emptying your shelves and bringing us everything you have, please consider the above information. We spend many volunteer hours sorting through books we don't need.

  • Please keep in mind that 90% of our readers are men and are thus interested in fiction and nonfiction written for and about men.

THE PRISON BOOK PROJECT

The volunteers who keep the store and project running appreciate the support and generosity shown by many, in the form of books and monetary donations, time, and help. We’re a grass-roots project that really works!
