New Volunteers: Next Orientation is Sunday, January 4

We’ll be skipping a week in our usual last-Sunday-of-the-month volunteer orientation schedule to better accommodate holiday plans for many. (We will be open 2–5 p.m. for current volunteers and drop-off donations of books and leftover money.)

Join us for our next orientation session, led by one of our experienced volunteers—Sunday, January 4, 1–2 p.m., right before our regular 2–5pm work session. Get the details here.

You may find this well timed for taking action with a New Year’s resolution or two. Volunteer? Meet new people? Get involved with an issue you care about? Make a concrete, personal difference in the lives of people in difficult circumstances?

If you’re not often available on Sunday, check out other ways to get involved and help give women in prison the self-empowerment, education and entertainment that reading provides.
