Books Through Bars sends free books to people who are incarcerated in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia and New York. This Packathon will be taking place a couple days after Valentine's day, and we're inviting you to come spread a different kind of love with us — help get packages out to all the incarcerated folks waiting for books!

Volunteers will be reading letters, matching people's requests with books from our library, and/or wrapping up the books into packages. You can drop in at any time, there will be Packathon hosts to show you what to do if you are new!

If you want to come with a group of 4 or more people, please e-mail us at [email protected] so that we can accommodate you in our limited space. Like all Books Through Bars packing sessions, this is an 18+ event.

In order to help us cover the costs of packing and mailing all these books, we are holding an online fundraiser. Please donate if you can, and help us out by spreading the word —
