Prison Book Program
In the last two years, we've sent twenty plus boxes of new books to the Prison Book Program and that is all thanks to you! We refresh our wishlist frequently, so check back often. Thanks again for supporting Wellesley Books and the Prison Book Program!
The Prison Book Program believes in the life-changing power of literature. Books give people the chance to learn, grow, and explore the worlds of their choosing. Since 1972, the Prison Book Program has been sending free books to individuals in prisons. Along with each hand-selected package, volunteers send personalized notes to each reader--because everyone deserves the freedom to read. To learn more about what the Prison Book Program offers (and to see how you can volunteer), please visit their website at www.prisonbookprogram.org.
Wellesley Books is partnering with the Prison Book Program to provide books. Below you will find a list of most-needed/most-requested books.
