Louisiana Books 2 Prisoners is a 100% volunteer effort.

Our primary purpose is sending free reading materials to the incarcerated. The majority of our budget is spent on shipping supplies and postage. Our collective members and volunteers do not receive any kind of financial compensation.

Louisiana Books 2 Prisoners relies on donations through grants and individual contributions to continue our work. Please consider donating, as you contribution will help get books into the hands of those that need them most.

These donations also allow us to purchase much needed resources such as dictionaries, study guides for high school aptitude tests, and blank journals.  A minimal portion of our budget is spent on administrative expenses and we contribute our own labor for building projects.  Even the bookshelves in our space were constructed by our own members with grant money specifically dedicated to that purpose.
