Aiming for a full dictionary shelf

Dictionaries fly off the shelves at PBP. Help us buy 1000 copies!

About 1 out of every 3 letter writers ask us for a dictionary. Prisoners everywhere are using them to improve their reading skills, to write coherent letters for legal and personal reasons and to understand the books they read.

The only way to keep up with the demand is to buy dictionaries in bulk. If we buy them in quantities of 1000, we can get them at more than 40% off or $2.74 each. We are buying the American Century Dictionary, which is a collegiate level reference appropriate for most of the people who write to us . It has more than 50,000 entries.

We're aiming to raise $2740 from our supporters. Donate $3 or $300. Everything helps!
