Public Support for Prison Libraries

It is great to have the public support prison libraries, instead of thinking that the service we provide is rewarding criminals. Dan Rodricks of WYPR and the Baltimore Sun published my wish list of materials to help inmates transition back to the community.  His readers responded by sending me checks for $10.00, $50.00 and $200.00 to purchase materials.  Three  readers mailed me books from the list.  One public library contacted me and I got dozens of career, resume,  and trade books from their left over book sales.
Thanks everyone!
