Nevada-Cure, a strong prisoner support group, has started a book drive to fill the libraries of the prisons in Nevada with some new or some more books for the prisoners. Books form a very welcome and helpful way to educate, diffuse tension and give a mental boost to people who are locked up.
The libraries are not a priority of NDOC (Nevada Department of Corrections), nor is education or rehabilitation high on their agenda.
Judging from letters that come to the Bay View, a large proportion of Nevada prisoners come from the Bay Area or elsewhere in California, so these are our brothers and sisters.
Anyone with books to donate to NDOC prisons should contact Kim at (702) 378-1217 or email Nevadacure@gmail.com.
Thank you for your help.
