Books on Wheels has been a tremendous resource for The Messages Project. We record and send messages from inmates to their children. When we are able, we like to make books available for the inmates to read on camera and then send as a gift to their children with the DVD they have made. We feel strongly that the tangible gift of a book in this situation conveys very forcefully that literacy is important. Since literacy and educational attainment are correlated with keeping kids out of prison when they become adults, we are really excited to have a partner like Books on Wheels which helps us keep supplied with paperbacks we can offer as part of our programming.
