HACK LIBRARY SCHOOL
Providing Library Services to Incarcerated Populations
A year and a half ago we also got to meet some of our readers at IYC Harrisburg to learn about the power of reading for them. One of our readers said that the book Tyrell by Coe Booth saved his life because he felt like he could really relate to that young person’s life. For us it’s such an essential component that these young people can pick the books that they want, that they are telling diverse stories by diverse authors, so that they can continue to have that thirst for reading–it isn’t a book that’s thrown on them, but it’s something that they want to read and they want to engage in.
