At the ALA conference around 66 persons listened to 4 prison librarians tell "inside stories"- the successful family literacy programs that are conducted inside the fence. I hope it inspires more public librarians to do outreach in this area, and more librarians who work in prison, to step outside the box, and take the extra step to provide family literacy events.
