Help Process Donated Books

Help Books Through Bars NYC package and ship their donated books (or donate some yourself - especially dictionaries!) at their temporary location at Freebird Bookstore in Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill, Brooklyn! Help them get books to prisoners who need them to supplement their education and improve their literacy, which helps prevent future criminal acts.

Three days a week, BTB NYC meets in the basement of Freebird Bookstore, where they collect and process donated books:
- Mondays 7:30-9:30pm
- Thursdays 7:30-9:30pm
- Sundays 5:00-8:00pm

123 Columbia Street btw Kane and Degraw

Have a car? BTB NYC is not located near a post office and they are looking for people to transport stamped packages, both one-time-only and on a regular basis. They are grateful for any help!

There are other ways to get involved, such as maintaining a book collection center or drop box, or organizing fundraisers and helping to sell books that BTB NYC cannot use. Contact them to discuss options.
