Book Drive for Books through Bars January 13th - 26th

Book Drive For Books Through Bars At Webster’s Bookstore January 13th - 26th

Located Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Books Through Bars is an all-volunteer non-profit organization. We distribute free books and educational materials to prisoners in seven states. The educational materials we send—often to people who otherwise have little to no access to them—support prisoner education. This leads to critical personal growth and promotes successful community reintegration.

For more information on Books Through Bars, please visit our website booksthroughbars.org.

CASH donations accepted through their website!

Books We Always Need:

For all categories, paperback books are greatly preferred (many prisons don’t accept hardback).

  • Paperback dictionaries (Soft cover dictionaries are our #1 request and we send them out as quick as we can get them!)
