Books to Prisoners
Left Bank Books sponsors the Books to Prisoners (BTP) program that works to provide free literature to prisoners. Please check out all of the amazing work they do here.
BTP provides free books to people in prison
all over the United States.
The project receives over 700 requests for books each month & attempts to
send 1-3 books to each person in prison they receive a request from. The
project relies wholly upon donations to cover costs of operation, so financial
support & books are in constant demand.
Books in especially short supply are DICTIONARIES, black studies, Latino
history, self-help legal books, and titles written in Spanish. BTP can only send paperback books to prisons. Please do not send hardbacks. Donations, referrals, grant tips, etc. are
always needed & appreciated.
