Books Through Bars is an all-volunteer non-profit Philadelphia-based organization. We believe that systemic social, educational, and economic inequality leads to relentless cycles of crime and mass incarceration. One of the ways to reverse the devastating effects that injustice and incarceration has on individuals, families and communities is to provide free books and educational materials to prisoners.
More Books Through Bars are a group of volunteers from Northwest Philadelphia. Our aim is to collect for Books Through Bars a minimum of 400 of the most often requested books.
