Books Behind Bars coverage

It’s good to see additional coverage of Kay Allison’s Books Behind Bars popping up around the Internet:

Here’s a snippet from the Quest Institute’s site. It explains the ways that people can help support the project.

Making a Difference – You Can Help

The success of Books Behind Bars depends on support from our community.

Volunteers are needed to:

» Donate gently used books

» Read letters by prisoners and match donated books with ones they have requested.

» Organize and shelve books in our library.

» Hold a book drive or postage fundraiser with your work, church, or civic group.

» Help with the Annual Bike & Bake Valentine’s Day fundraiser.

Many people in prison have little or no contact with family or friends. Becoming a pen pal would give support and encouragement to those who would welcome the opportunity to correspond with someone.
