Donating books to fight recidivism and improve inmate success

Prison libraries provide valuable resources for inmates as they prepare for re-entering society by helping inmates learn skills like personal finance, resume writing, and entrepreneurship.  Unfortunately most prison libraries do not have the funding to keep their libraries well stocked.


With the help of the Ohio State community and campus area libraries, we successfully collected over 220 books for local prison libraries. Your generous donations will contribute to improving the academic and career outcomes of inmates and help reduce recidivism in Columbus. PassGo would like to sincerely thank the Ohio State community libraries and everyone who donated!
