Each month, staff and friends here at Old Capitol Books have been pooling our money to send books off to prisoners in California’s jails and prisons. This holiday season, we invite the Monterey community to open their hearts and send a prisoner the gift of a book. We believe that books and reading are so important that everyone deserves the chance to have access to good literature.
We have lists of prisoners in California’s jails and what they like to read. You can pick out a book and send a note, or simply get the book and we’ll do the rest. Anyone who wants to buy a book for a prisoner will receive 50% off that book and Old Capitol Books will package the book and send it off. Also, if you know someone in jail or prison, you can take advantage of this holiday sale!
