Big News! Fundraiser! Book Match!

Greetings from your favorite B2P program. We have TWO fundraisers right now! First some Big News:

Did you know we started in 2003? That’s 20 years! More than 10 of those at our current home in the Seventh Ward. It’s time for a new space that better fits our current needs and increases our capacity to fulfill our mission and we are finalizing details on just the spot. That’s right- we are planning a move! We know you have lots of questions, like “When can we volunteer???” We can’t wait to share more exciting details about our new space and how it will improve our ability to have volunteers. Stay tuned for more announcements in the weeks to come!


Your donations via Give Nola Day will help us with moving related expenses such as furnishings that maximize the utility of the new space. Any donations beyond our moving expenses will go towards our general operations, including books, postage, and rent. Help us reach our $2500 goal!

Now through May 8th we have a donor matching the cost of all donated books from our wishlist at Tubby & Coo’s Mid City Book Shop. Support your favorite B2P group, an amazing local bookseller, and get beautiful new books to people inside! Follow the directions at the link to have the book mailed directly to us. Help us reach our $1000 match!


  1. Donate now through May 2nd at 11:59pm via Give NOLA Day!
  2. Buy books now through May 8th at our Tubby & Coo’s wishlist link and we will get matching $$!
  3. Stay tuned for details on our move and future volunteer opportunities!

Thank you for your continued support!

We appreciate you as do the many readers inside who receive books from us.

LAB2P is seeking a new home

Louisiana Books 2 Prisoners is seeking a new home in a more accessible location. Our library requires a minimum of ~500 square feet but we would also be open to a larger space. Must have air conditioning.

Do you know any local groups that might be interested in renting space? Do you have any advice on commercial real estate, which is something we know absolutely nothing about whatsoever? I only know how to send people books and update websites. Please help.

Please email us:

LAB2P volunteer nights are CLOSED for further notice due to COVID-19.

Louisiana Books 2 Prisoners is taking steps to protect the health of our volunteers and collective members in our small, crowded space. But we are still sending books!

We will not be hosting our regular walk-in worknights and instead will work with a few regular volunteers to continue operating in a capacity that limits risk. We will post an update when walk-in work nights are back on.

Please do not drop off book donations for now.
