APPALACHIAN PRISON BOOK PROJECT

11/25/13

The Appalachian School of Law has become an active participant in the Appalachian Prison Book Project. The Project is a tax-exempt 501 (c ) (3) nonprofit organization that sends free books to women and men who are imprisoned in the Appalachian region. Many prisons lack adequate libraries and books can be a real life line to individuals doing time. Both students and faculty will contribute a variety of law books that will certainly make life easier for the inmates. Staff members Jina Sauls and Glenna Owens and Professor Dale Rubin are coordinators of the activity. Students Rosalia Fiorello and Chris Eads prepare the books for transport and Wayne McClanahan and Tom Clautice will drive the books to the Prison Book Project which is located in Morgantown, West Virginia.
