I’ve started managing the wishlist for the Jail Library Group through UW-Madison’s library school – a group that delivers books by request to people incarcerated at the dane county jail in Madison, WI. I just updated the amazon wishlist to reflect the specific titles and topics that folks have requested recently – the stuff further back in the wishlist is stuff that was added awhile ago but is frequently requested. the folks in this jail don’t have a library they can walk through and browse – it’s just a storage space they don’t have access to. volunteers go into the storage space and look through the books trying to fill their requests, but if we don’t have the book they requested, they don’t get a book. the items on the wishlist are taken from requests we couldn’t fill using the books in the storage space. if you can, please help us get books to the people who requested them. Donate through our amazon wishlist!
And spread the word!!
Looking for a way to help people who are incarcerated? Please consider donating books to the Jail Library Group in Madison, WI through Amazon. The requested books are on this Amazon Wishlist; couldn’t be simpler. Your book donation can make a huge difference.
