DC Books to Prisons Project

"I would like to thank you and your coworkers for all that you do to help incarcerated people. You all are a blessing to all of us, and I appreciate all that you do."

- Rafael A., Corcoran, CA



CLOSED on Wednesday, May 16, 2018
Due to flooding, we will be CLOSED on Wednesday, May 16, 2018. All of our books are safe, and we will resume normal operations on Wednesday, May 23, 2018. Thank you to the volunteers who moved books to safety during the storm!

Partnership with Politics and Prose
On Friday, June 1, 2018, we will have a table at Politics and Prose's Connecticut Avenue store. We look forward to the opportunity to talk with book lovers about our program! Also, we will receive 20% of sales from anyone who mentions DC Books to Prisons at the cash register that day.

New Volunteer Orientation
First-time volunteers are welcome to join us on the third Wednesday of the month at 6:30 PM sharp for orientation and a chance to answer letters from prisoners. Returning volunteers who want a refresher are also welcome to attend the orientation. Please read about volunteering then register for orientation via our DC Books to Prisons Orientation Sign-Up form. Contact b2porientation@gmail.com if you have any questions.
