Happy New Year, everyone! We have had an unusual number of groups contact us about volunteering at our worknights this spring. We welcome volunteer groups of up to 12 people at our weekly Sunday worknights (4-7 p.m.).

The following dates are currently open for groups to volunteer:

After that, we are pretty open and haven’t scheduled much. If your group is interested in volunteering, please email us at and let us know the number of people and the dates you would like to come.

The Annual New Orleans Books Fair is Saturday, December 8th, 2018!

The Book Fair is at Gasa Gasa this year! The address is 4920 Freret Street, New Orleans, LA. Hours are 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. We will be there unloading some of the many hardbacks that we can’t send to prisons. Take them off our hands! Sliding scale donations accepted. It’s a really good selection this year– we already got rid of all the books that looked boring.

We also have brand new t-shirts designed by Hugo Girl and printed by us! They look great.

Come check out the independent writers, printers, and publishers and also come say hi to us! There will be books, magazines, letterpress stuff, posters, and probably food.

Please donate to LAB2P on GiveNOLA Day: May 1, 2018!

GiveNOLA Day is an event hosted by the Greater New Orleans Foundation to inspire people to give generously to nonprofits making our region stronger, creating a thriving community for all. Donations can be scheduled now through midnight on May 1st, and each donation enters us into drawings for additional funding through the GNO Foundation. We assure you that 100% of the money donated comes to us and will be used to buy books, tapes, and postage.

Please consider making a donation to Louisiana Books 2 Prisoners to help us fulfill our mission and send free books to people who are locked up. We are a 100% donation-based group and stamps get expensive! Every little bit helps, and it means a lot to those who depend on us for books and a connection to the outside world.

$10.00 Three Package of Books
$20.00 One GED Guide
$50.00 One case of packing tape
$100.00 A dozen dictionaries
$150.00 Postage for one worknight
