PLP & COVID-19 – June update

June 2020  |  Published in Latest News

A quick update: sadly, Prisoners Literature Project still can’t host regular volunteer sessions, and may not be able to for some time, due to COVID-19 and the cramped indoor nature of the library/bookpacking.

We’ve had to return a few hundred prisoner letters (with an apology note) so that we’re not eventually 6 months+ behind on answering requests.

However, Gina and our co-ordinators and special requests crew have been volunteering solo, socially distanced, and we’re still managing to send out about 80-100 book packages per week. Thanks so much to them!

And here is a thank you letter we received recently – so it’s good that packages are still getting through, even in this difficult time:
