This volunteer opportunity welcomes all BBA members to assist the Prison Book Program in
distributing books to prisoners incarcerated in facilities across the
nation. Volunteers will read letters from prisoners; choose books that fit
the prisoners’ interests and prepare packages of books to be sent to the
prisons. The requested books span genres and subjects and offer escape,
entertainment, and practical information.
The Program is located in the basement of the First Parish Church, 1306
Hancock Street in Quincy, Massachusetts. The First Parish Church is across from
Quincy City Hall and close to the Quincy Center T Station. The Quincy Center T
Station is served by the Red Line, commuter rail and buses. The door to the
Prison Book Program is located on Temple Street.
