Support Us!

Thanks for your interest in getting reading materials into the hands of people locked in our nation’s prisons and jails. We send free books and zines (small booklets) to people locked up in North Carolina and Alabama, and zines nationwide!

  • DONATE MONEY: Our biggest need is always money! In order to keep sending books and zines into prisons, we need your help!   Our requests for books have recently jumped, and instead of spending $400 per month on postage, we’ve been spending $650 per month on postage alone!!! And that’s not counting copies, supplies and website (another $100). Your help is so critical!!  Note: We are now a 501(c)(3) non-profit, so all donations are tax deductible. Email us for more information: prisonbooks@gmail.com.
  • VOLUNTEER: Workdays are every Sunday, 1-4 pm at 4312 Etta Rd, Durham, NC. See this post for more details about our new location and directions. And check out our volunteering page for general information about volunteering.
  • DONATE BOOKS: For a limited time, we are accepting donations of ALL books (through March 15, 2018). Although we still have our list of priority book genres. Check out our book donation page for more details about our in-demand genres and instructions for donating.
