A project of the University of South Africa Corrections Interest Group
We collect books of any language or genre, both fiction and non-fiction, and donate them to libraries in Correctional Centres.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
Books allow offenders to participate in the world of civil discourse, ideas, learning and imagination from which they are physically excluded. Books have the potential to morally and intellectually elevate offenders above their confined circumstances and to prepare them for a life after incarceration.
WHAT WE AIM TO ACHIEVE
Our main aim is to place books in the hands of offenders. However, we also assist in other ways:
