Books To Prisoners is a Seattle-based nonprofit organization whose mission is to foster a love of reading behind bars, encourage the pursuit of knowledge and self-empowerment, and break the cycle of recidivism. We believe that books are tools for learning and for opening minds to new ideas and possibilities, and engage incarcerated individuals with the benefits of reading by mailing tens of thousands of free books to inmates across the country each year. In 2015, the City of Seattle recognized Books to Prisoners as a Human Rights Leader.
We want all of your books. Any that cannot be directly donated to Books to Prisoners will be sold at Half Price Books, funds received from Half Price Books will be donated to Books to Prisoners to help with postage and other expenses.

*Due to a recent change in DOC policies, books will no longer go to Washington prisons, but will continue to be sent to prisoners throughout the country.
