Books are age-old tools for individualized learning. Portable and inexpensive, they can go inside prisons and jails where opportunities for learning may be limited, visitors infrequent, and new ways of thinking rare. A book can be a friend, a teacher, an invitation to explore/an adventure.
Books Inside's mission and purpose is to ensure that quality books are available inside prisons and jails adding to the chance that incarcerated individuals may see other possibilities for the direction of their life experiences. On the ‘outside’ old, dog-eared books may be worthless, but on the ‘inside’ they are priceless.
