Prison Book Program

The Prison Book Program believes in the life-changing power of literature. Books give people the chance to learn, grow, and explore the worlds of their choosing. Since 1972, the Prison Book Program has been sending free books to individuals in prisons. Along with each hand-selected package, volunteers send personalized notes to each reader--because everyone deserves the freedom to read. To learn more about what the Prison Book Program offers (and to see how you can volunteer), please visit their website at www.prisonbookprogram.org.


Wellesley Books is partnering with the Prison Book Program to provide books. Below you will find a list of most-needed/most-requested books. All books are available to order. Select the titles and quantity of the book(s) you'd like to purchase and select Pick-up in Store at check-out. A volunteer from the Prison Book Program will pick up the books. Please call the store at (781) 431-1160 or email orders@wellesleybooks.com with any questions.
