Read Between the Bars Announces a New Book Donation Location

Donation BinRead Between the Bars is excited to announce a new drop-off location for book donations. With the help of a generous grant from the Sparkplug Foundation, Read Between the Bars has been able to purchase a new book donation bin, and with the support of the University of Arizona Poetry Center, that donation bin has been set up in the Poetry Center building at 1508 East Helen Street on the UA campus in Tucson.

The donation bin is located in the Poetry Center’s library. Supporters can leave their new and gently used books in the bin during the Poetry Center’s business hours.

This new donation bin will provide supporters with a second location where they can donate their books. Book donations can still be left at the Tucson office of the American Friends Service Committee at 103 North Park Avenue, Suite 111, in Tucson. Additionally, books can be dropped off at any of our announced book-packing parties.

For making possible the supply of books that have kept RBtB’s books-to-prisoners program running for the last six years, RBtB would like to thank the UA Poetry Center, the American Friends Service Committee Arizona Office, the Sparkplug Foundation, and the many community supporters who have donated their books to support RBtB’s mission.
