The Books For Prisoners program at Groundwork Books needs your help! Our crew of dedicated volunteers sends book donations to prisoners free of charge. Every month we receive thousands of letters from inmates from all over the country requesting reading material. Many of these inmates write to us in hopes of enriching their lives through education and empowering themselves through literature. In addition, the educational potential of a book has the ability to reduce rates of recitivism which means an educated and literate inmate, once out of prison, will stay out as a functional and respectful member of society. Responding to the various requests at Books For Prisoners each month can seem like a herculean endeavor. Likewise the cost of shipping and providing quality books to prisoners on a regular basis requires solid financial support. The average cost of sending a book to a prisoner is 3 USD. As many of the prisoners who write to us are indigent, Books For Prisoners relies upon donations to provide access to literature. Books For Prisoners does not seek to negatively pass judgment on or glorify the incarcerated rather we aim to provide viable means for them to educate themselves.
