Personal Links with Prison Librarians

Since our last report we have been able to make a contribution of £200 to each of our 3 Devon prisons by contacting the librarians and sending the £600 via Libraries Unlimited (the new co-ordinating body that helps all the libraries in Devon, including the prisons of Channings Wood, Exeter and Dartmoor)

We are still also sending small quantities of books that the librarians have asked us to look for add to their library stocks.

Two of our Committee members are arranging to visit the Dartmoor librarian, at her request, shortly

We are still looking for further support , via our Global Giving Project page, as the moneys we have so far donated have come mainly direct from our small bookshop funds.

We are most grateful to all our current supporters and hope you will continue to support us and maybe encourage your friends too.
