Event description

Description

Join Repair the World to package books to send to incarecerated people with Books Through Bars. NYC Books Through Bars is an all-volunteer-run group that sends free, donated books to incarcerated people across the nation. Bring your friends! Everyone can learn about the realities of the carceral system.

We'll be reading letters from people in prison, filling book requests, putting together packages to mail to prisons, and cleaning the space where donated books are stored before they're sent out.

Books Though Bars is located in the basement of Freebird Books, and can be dusty; wear close-toed shoes and clothes that can get dirty. This is not an accessible location; entrance is via the hatch, and a set of stairs, and the floor can be uneven. Watch your head when entering. This is suggested for people 14 and older and is not appropriate for young children.
