Open Book project seeking book donations for prison libraries

Open Book is a student-faculty collaboration at CWRU. Its mission is to collect and deliver high-quality, lightly used books to incarcerated communities in Northeast Ohio. Donated books are collected at the Department of English office in Room 106 of Guilford House. They are delivered to the prisons each month. The books must be soft covered. The prison libraries prefer serious fiction, such as biography and classics, among other genres.
