On behalf of someone incarcerated

If you would like to request books for someone who is incarcerated please email us at We are happy to send books to members of the LGBTQ+ community who are incarcerated in all states except TX (other groups serve TX, for a list check here). 

We just need to know the person’s name, prison ID #, address, and the genres of books they would like to request.  Please email us with the request, or to request that an order form be sent directly to someone on the inside.
