I had the opportunity to send books to inmates who were passionate about improving their literacy and value knowledge.
As stated in my previous entry, I enjoyed participating in the duties that this project allows. Very interactive and wonderful environment.
I enjoy participating with this East Austin Project. It provides a chance for volunteers to be interactive with a different part of the community and it allows the chance for the volunteers themselves to collaborate with one anoher and get to know each other. As always, I enjoy spending my time here.
As for my duty, I worked with another volunteer to read a letter from an incarcerated individual and scavenge the library to find a suitable piece of literature that we believe the person will enjoy. Afterward, we are given the chance to write a letter to the person.
I had a great experience packaging books for prisoners. Getting to provide these people with something to keep them going is rewarding. Lots of other people were there too, and they were very nice. This will likely not be my last experience at Inside Books.
