Description

Established in 1973, Books to Prisoners began in Seattle and has expanded to Olympia and Portland. Together, the group sends books to prisoners every month, delivering thousands of materials over the years. Books change lives and you can aid in supporting the continued education of folks who are incarcerated by volunteering and donating.

Every Tuesday night from 5-7 pm at In Other Words, volunteers gather to ship approximately 20 books to people across the country. Drop in to help package or drop off high-need donations including paper-back books, journals, dictionaries, packaging tape, and standard 8.5” x 11” paper. Can’t make it in person?

You can send funds via Paypal to help cover the $300 monthly expenses at bookstoprisoners@riseup.net. For more info or questions, send an email to bookstoprisoners@riseup.net, or send us a message here on FB.

Hope to see you on Tuesday!
