QUESTION: Service to Books to Prisoners Group

question / pregunta: 

I'm a member of a prisoner solidarity group here in Montreal called Open Door Books. We send books to prison libraries and we also get requests for information from individuals in prison (ex. questions about specific legislation in certain states, etc). We try to find the requested information to the best of our ability, but i was just wondering if this is the type of thing that we could send to you guys for help with.
Thanks, andrea


Yes, absolutely, though we can't make any promises about getting answers posted within a tight time frame. Just use the same webform that you used to post this question.

Also, feel free to recruit local librarians and LIS students to help with Radical Reference (and the prisoners' questions might get answered faster)! We even have our flyer available in French.

(I worked with Open Door Books while I was in library school at McGill!)
