Who We Are

volunteers, librarians, incarcerated library staff

We are volunteers, librarians, and library staff who want to help improve prison libraries and work towards better information access for people who are incarcerated. This is our small contribution towards social justice and improving conditions in prisons. Our Advisory Board Members are the incarcerated library staff that help run the San Quentin Library. We meet monthly to discuss their ideas, the library's needs, and programs we can collaborate on.
