General Information
Description of AgencyBooks Through Bars was originally established to send packages of books to individual prisoners as they requested them. Today this remains the primary function of the collective. Over the years, as we have been able to send packages to greater numbers of prisoners, we have also been able to create and expand other significant projects. Such projects include a prisoner art show and publication, national and local prison library projects, political education and public education projects.
