WA officials reverse ‘used book ban’ for PLP, other orgs

April 2019  |  Published in Announcements, Latest News

Good news – the ban on used books being sent to prisoners in Washington State has largely been resolved, as the Seattle Times explained last week.

(Though there’s still some negotiation over details, there will now be named non-profits who are allowed to donate directly to prisoners, and PLP will be one of them.)

Thanks to everyone who signed a petition or otherwise sent good thoughts, and special thanks to Seattle Books To Prisoners for arranging the pushback.
