Blue Island in Pilsen Midwest Books to Prisoners (MWBTP) sends reading materials to those incarcerated. It was formed in June of 2004 and is all volunteer run. Books to Prisoners (BTP) is part of a larger national network of similar groups. This benefit is for postage, which is our biggest burden! The US has the largest prison population in the world. MWBTP feels that by sending books we educate, entertain and empower a population that otherwise is disregarded by mainstream society. A large population, that continues to grow in the US.
