Donate books to inmates

Low literacy levels contribute to engaging in criminal behavior.  Promoting reading and education inside our prisons helps inmates prepare for a successful future when they are released.

Have books you want to donate to people who want to read them? Illinois prisons are full of readers waiting for new material! Please contact any of the organizations below to set up a donation. Thank you for your contribution -- reading is a good way to improve one's life behind bars!
