Incarcerated folks can write to us at the following address to request books:


Books Behind Bars

PO BOX 2611

Wildwood, New Jersey 08260


Please include your name, ID number, facility nameaddress, and the kind of books you want. Since all of our books are donated, we can't guarantee exact titles (though we do our best). You’ll have better luck if you also include subjects, genres or authors. The more areas of interest that you send us, the more likely it is that we’ll find good books that match what you’re looking for.​

     If you have a family member, friend, or loved one that would benefit from Books Behind Bars, please forward them our mailing address so they can send us a request for books.

     Please note that we are currently only serving people incarcerated in New Jersey facilities.
