Literacy Awareness and Prison Books Book Drive

The Literacy Council of Buncombe County and Blue Ridge Literacy Council's AmeriCorps members are setting up an educational booth and book drive to benefit Asheville Prison Books as part of National Literacy Action Week. Come tell us why literacy is important to you and donate your gently-loved books to our incarcerated community members!

The largest need is for dictionaries and fiction written by people of color. Books must be paperback and less than two inches thick.

Community events at our co-op are made possible by generous contributions from our supporters. Click here to learn how you can become a Firestorm Community Sustainer!
