“If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation in bound up with mine, then let us work together.” -Lilla Watson, Murri activist
Books to Prisoners is open Sundays 12 pm – 3 pm. (We are closed the last two Sundays in December.) Please contact us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to set up an orientation. Volunteers typically work on filling and packing inmates’ requests. This work is incredibly rewarding if you have a love of books and the ability to provide non-judgemental support to others.
The threat of COVID 19 and its variants continues and while the Evergreen campus has partially re-opened, there are strict guidelines for individuals working on the campus. Due to those guidelines, BTP Olympia is still closed to outside volunteers. This status will be in place until further notice. Please check back periodically for updates. (Updated 11/30/21)
Olympia Books to Prisoners is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment and to addressing oppression and discrimination within our space.
