Why prison libraries matter

A great clip about the importance of prison libraries! Many thanks to Diana Reese, incoming ASCLA president, for sharing this with us!

We rarely hear how prison library services impacted offenders once they leave prison. At a recent Earth Day Fair, Denver Public Library recorded videos of people sharing why they love their libraries. One of them was an ex-offender. This is one of the reasons I love my job. So here is a love story to all of you who work in libraries behind the walls.
