New Volunteers: Orientation this Sunday, January 25

Please join us for our next orientation session, led by one of our experienced volunteers, this Sunday, January 25, 1–2 p.m. Then stay for our regular 2–5 p.m. work session. Get the details here.

Just learned about us? Been thinking of joining for a while? This is a terrific time to get involved with Chicago Books to Women in Prison. Not only will you make a concrete, personal difference in the lives of people in difficult circumstances, but we had a great year in 2014. And more is planned for 2015, including our new series of community events.

It’s also simply extremely satisfying to match a book request with books that you select, knowing that soon you will be making someone’s day in a powerful way.

Not often available on Sunday? We invite you to support our work in other ways and help give women in prison the self-empowerment, education and entertainment that reading provides.
