Books Sent To Prison: The Rogue Liberation Library

Peace House

Staying home in the pandemic has forced a lot of us to find new ways to pass the time, like some extra reading.

Our situation still bears little resemblance to what prison inmates experience in boredom and isolation. The Rogue Liberation Library, a project of Ashland-based Peace House, sends books to inmates in jails and prisons both near and far.

We hear about the kinds of books and the requests for them in a visit with RLL volunteers.
