YPG Cares: Volunteer for Books Through Bars

Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

1412558_627629850611790_602752834_oBooks Through Bars is a volunteer-run group that sends donated books to incarcerated people across the country. They accept donations at their NYC location: Freebirds Bookstore, 123 Columbia St., Brooklyn. Right now, we’re currently looking for paperback books about African American history, Native American history, Latin American history, and memoirs by people of color. There also tend to be a lot of requests for popular commercial thrillers/mysteries, such as James Patterson, Janet Evanovich, Lee Child, John Grisham, etc.

If you would like to volunteer your time, stop by Freebirds Bookstore on Sundays, 2pm-5pm, and Mondays, 7:30pm-9:30pm.

Donations of stamps and paper bags are also appreciated! To learn more about Books Through Bars, you can check out their website.
