Chicago Books to Women in Prison

Please consider donating paperback books to: Chicago Books to Women in Prison

Chicago Books to Women in Prison is a volunteer collective working to distribute books free of charge to women in prison nationwide. They are "dedicated to offering women behind bars the opportunity for self-empowerment, education, and entertainment that reading provides".

Prison libraries tend to be pretty dismal with little if any funding. Donations improve the lives of women prisoners significantly. They only take paperback book donations.

Good fiction is appreciated. Also consider: Self-Help, Recovery/Addiction, Meditation/Yoga, Daily Affirmations, Spiritual/Religion, Parenting, Dictionaries, Soft cover journals (blank), African-American fiction, Chicano fiction or, Latin American history and culture. See a librarian for drop off location at Winnetka Campus.
