We have started a Book-Drive to get the libraries of the prisons in Nevada filled with some new or some more books for those incarcerated.Books form a very welcome and helpful way of educating, diffusing tension and giving a mental boost to people who are locked up.
Some prisoners have been locked up in solitary confinement for 23 to 24/7 since extremely long time (years...).
The libraries are not a priority of NDOC, nor is education or rehabilitation high on the agenda of NDOC. Yet, libraries need fresh streams of books from time to time in order to keep their goals.
You can help us with the book drive:
Anyone with books to donate to NDOC prisones should contact KIM at (702) 378-1217 and arrange for her to pick-up or take delivery of the books to be donated. She is handling the book donation drive for NV-CURE. Please contact Kim as soon as possible. If you cannot reach her, email Nevadacure@gmail.com.
This book drive has been a long and drawn out project - and we need to get books to the prisoners as soon as possible.
Thank you for your help.
What kind of books?
Paperbacks are best, because from hardbacks covers will be taken.
