Prisoners Literature Project
  • A PLP thank-you letter to savor

    We always very much appreciate thank-you letters from U.S. prisoners, and this simple but pure thank-you card we received at PLP today is a wonderful example.

  • PLP library – rearranged.

    Thanks to a number of PLP co-ordinators, we rearranged the Prisoners Literature Project library at our HQ (Grassroots House in Berkeley) the other weekend.

  • A letter from a PLP client!

    We wanted to highlight this wonderful letter from a (now former) prisoner who used our Prisoners Literature Project service to get books.

  • Check out this PLP profile!

    In case you missed it: this wonderful profile of the work we do at the Prisoners Literature Project was posted on the Oakland North website last month.

About the Prisoners Literature Project

The Prisoners Literature Project is an all-volunteer grassroots group that sends hundreds of free book packages to needy prisoners in the United States every month.

Please consider donating to the PLP or volunteering your time (if you live in the Bay Area, CA!) to help our prison book program answer letters from prisoners who write us from all over the United States.
