The NV-CURE Book Drive for ESP was completed on 4/2/16. The Icelady brought the books she gathered in the North down to William in Vegas. William combined them with the books-gather in Vegas. Laurie drove the books to Ely and delivered the books (13 boxes of paperback books) the Associate Warden at ESP.
Congratulations people and a big that you for the help – particularly to Icelady, William and Laurie. Good job done. The guys in solitary, and those who are forced to share a cell with another man for long hours per day, will appreciate them.
Our next goal for our book drive will be the women’s prison, FMWCC.
ATTENTION: The following are the North and South drop off points for books for the NV-CURE High Desert State Prison (HDSP) soft cover book donation drive. NORTH: Gale, Reno, NV, telephone 775.335.7773 (9:00 AM until 4:00 PM Only – Weekdays). SOUTH: Kim, 702-378.1217, call and arrange for drop off or pick up. Alternatively, drop off at NV-CURE Office, 540 E. St. Louis Ave., Las Vegas, NV (9:00 AM until 4:00 PM ONLY – Weekdays) We still have not obtained approval from the NDOC for the book donations. However, if you recall, it is a long process. We look to have approval in the very near future. PLEASE – get the books together and get them dropped off. We are counting on you all to gather at least 1,000 books. GET BUSY. Thanks for the help. The guys inside will appreciate it. Very Best to All
We have started a Book-Drive to get the libraries of the prisons in Nevada filled with some new or some more books for those incarcerated.Books form a very welcome and helpful way of educating, diffusing tension and giving a mental boost to people who are locked up.
Some prisoners have been locked up in solitary confinement for 23 to 24/7 since extremely long time (years…).
The libraries are not a priority of NDOC, nor is education or rehabilitation high on the agenda of NDOC. Yet, libraries need fresh streams of books from time to time in order to keep their goals.
You can help us with the book drive:
Anyone with books to donate to NDOC prisones should contact KIM at (702) 378-1217 and arrange for her to pick-up or take delivery of the books to be donated. She is handling the book donation drive for NV-CURE. Please contact Kim as soon as possible. If you cannot reach her, email Nevadacure@gmail.com.
This book drive has been a long and drawn out project – and we need to get books to the prisoners as soon as possible.
Thank you for your help.
What kind of books?
Paperbacks are best, because from hardbacks covers will be taken. Non-fiction: languages, dictionaries, history books and politics, religions. Healthcare books, medical books, spiritual books, etc. Spanish books, African American books, etc.
