Book Donation Guidelines and Instructions


LAB2P is at reduced operations due to Covid. We can accept books off our wishlist below but please do not leave books at our space or try to come to the volunteer nights. No one will be there to sort the books or let you inside. No, we don’t know when we will reopen fully. We know– we miss you, too.

There is a list of other nonprofits who are accepting donations below.


Other Places to Donate Books:

If you are looking for another home in New Orleans for a bunch of books, we suggest the Little Free Libraries, the Friends of the New Orleans Public Library, or the UNO Symphony book sale. SisterHearts Thrift Store in New Orleans East is also a good option– it’s run by formerly incarcerated women (and also they have some really good stuff there– you should check it out).

If you’re open to sending books to another book group like ours, check out the National Prisoner to Prisoners Program List maintained by the Prison Book Program in Boston. We are just one of many orgs sending books to incarcerated people.
