About the Prison Book Program (PBP): Since 1972, PBP provides donated books and other reading material to incarcerated people. PBP believes education is a powerful tool that reduces the likelihood of a prisoner returning to the prison system. PBP’s goals are to encourage literacy by filling requests for books and other educational materials.

About the project: Volunteers will be responding to prisoners’ requests for books… There are traditionally 3 volunteer roles: opening and reading hand written letters, shopping for books, and preparing books for mailing—wrapping the books in brown paper and addressing the packages.
