We provide resources to promote the library and encourage reading for pleasure throughout the prison.

Book Talk is a website resource that recommends two book titles each month together with an overview and discussion questions. It’s a great way for our volunteers to make suggestions, to widen a group’s reading range and to help newer groups get going if they are unsure of what to read.

BOOKSTUFF is a fortnightly handout which celebrates books and reading in the form of quizzes, poetry, philosophical conundrums and short stories.

Finding a Good Read is our monthly column in Inside Time which we also send to prison libraries as a handout. We have also created four Finding a Good Read videos for prison television and media channels.
