Dictionaries to Women in Prison

Chicago Books to Women in Prison is having a Dictionary Drive and we need your help. We are a volunteer collective that distributes books free of charge to women in prison nationwide. Incarcerated women send us their requests for books and we attempt to furnish the requested materials.
No other request comes in more frequently than the one for a dictionary. A woman incarcerated in Florida writes “I will be incarcerated for up to two more years and receive very little support from my family. However, I’m trying to further my education. Please send me a dictionary and any other reference material you think would help. Anything you could send will be greatly appreciated.”
We are unable to provide dictionaries to everyone who requests them. You can help us meet this overwhelming need by donating dictionaries or money to purchase them.
Please contact us at chicagobwp@hotmail.com to let us know how you wish to be involved. We will publicize a list of supporters on our website and in the next edition of our newsletter. We thank you in advance for helping us provide this much desired and necessary resource for the women in prison.
