Other Books to Prisoners Programs

Prison Book Program sends books to prisoners in all states except California, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Nevada, and Texas.  Other books-to-prisoners programs may be able to send books to those states.  These are the programs we are aware of and their areas of service.

If you would like to donate books but live outside the Boston area, we encourage you to find another books-to-prisoners program near you.  Be sure to check out the group’s website for further information before dropping off your book donations.
