By the LLNE Service Committee
In association with the 2016 Spring Law Librarians of New England (LLNE) Meeting, the LLNE Service Committee has organized a book drive for the Rhode Island Department of Corrections library system. The Service Committee has met with library staff of the prison system and has worked with volunteers to compile a list of needed acceptable books.
All books donated must be from this list and must be donated in new condition based on the institutional rules.
The list of books can be found at: http://www.amazon.com/registry/giftlist/1R2951TFE7498
We have chosen a wide variety of titles which are both legal and non-legal. We have also chosen titles at a variety of price points.
Donations can be purchased on Amazon and mailed to:
Roger Williams University School of Law Library
10 Metacom Ave
Bristol, RI 02809
In addition to the book drive we will also be engaging in an advocacy effort to ask prison officials to make the rules about acceptable material more lenient and more standardized.
