Imagine being on that proverbial desert island… with all the time in the world… and you’ve only got one book. For women in the Shelby County Corrections Center, it probably feels like that sometimes.
That’s why two Memphians are working to create a library for the women’s prison. But they can only do it with a community book drive. You can join the effort and get updates on the project by clicking this Facebook event page.
Or just drop off gently used paperback books* at two separate book drives:
Saturday, June 15th from 9 – 5pm at Theatre Memphis
Saturday, June 29th from 9 – 5pm in the parking lot of Playhouse on the Square (To Be Rescheduled)
*Only paperback books can be accepted.
