DC Books to Prisons Project
Since 1999, DC Books to Prisons Project has provided free books to prisoners around the country. We also develop and support local prison libraries. Our work is done solely by concerned volunteers on donated time and resources. Unlike some programs, we do not limit requests for books to a particular geographic area or demographic group; therefore, we receive a tremendous number of requests. Yearly, we send out 2,000 to 4,000 packages. These packages go to prisoners in 150 different prisons in all 50 states.
