About Open Books | Open Books Bookstore & Prison Book ProjectPlease request by topic not exact title or author , and provide several areas of interest if possible. Please be patient. We get so many requests that it may take a while to receive the books. Please wait a few months after receiving books before requesting again. Prisoners can specify the types of books they are interested and we fulfill these requests to the best of our ability. The Prison Book Project sends thousands of books each year to indigent inmates in Florida prisons, the largest prison system in the country and one sorely lacking basic books. Prisoners simply have to send us a letter and we send them books.

Checklist for Sending Books and Magazines to Inmates:
Open Books is a non-profit, volunteer-run bookstore. The Prison Book Project currently sends around 10, books each year to indigent inmates in Florida prisons, one of the largest prison systems in the country and one sorely lacking in-house book collections. The Prison Book Project currently serves approximately 2, inmates each year. We provide free books to improve the lives of prisoners, to provide educational resources, and to help reduce the likelihood of their returning to the prison system. Our communities fare better when prisoners returning to society have had an opportunity to learn, grow, and mature as individuals.
