The Prison Books Project

is an organization that provides books to incarcerated persons throughout New York State, by request. People who are incarcerated in area prisons can use free postcards or simply write to us at our P.O. Box to request books or book recommendations. Then we order the books, connect with individual sponsors, pack up the books, and send them to the person who made the request. Most of this activity happens through Binnacle Books in Beacon, NY.
