Get Involved: Volunteer


Volunteer With Us!

Books to Prisoners strives to help incarcerated individuals by providing tools for education and self-fulfillment. Our volunteers and donors agree: helping Books to Prisoners is a rewarding experience.

As a non-profit 501(c)(3) with only one part-time paid staff member, we have no end of volunteer opportunities, and you can be sure that your time and efforts will be deeply appreciated by the prisoners we serve.


BTP is open for volunteers at our U-District location:

Tuesday: 6-10 pm

Wednesday: 9:30 am-1:30 pm/6-10 pm

Thursday: 6-10 pm

We welcome service learning volunteers, court-ordered community service volunteers, and groups of volunteers. Volunteers with previous experience in a library setting or who are avid readers are best prepared to help choose books from our library–but we welcome all who love to learn! For details on our location and additional information about the volunteer process, please email:

We request that ALL court-ordered community service volunteers contact us by email first.
