Donate Books

The range of interests prisoners have in the world is as broad and varied as the population at large. Donations of books across the entire spectrum of fiction and nonfiction subjects are both needed and appreciated. Scroll down for information on our book donation drop-off locations in Madison and Milwaukee.

Topics of interest that are frequently requested include:

  • Occupational and vocational trades
  • Legal material, thesauruses and almanacs
  • How to start a business or non-profit
  • Foreign language learning materials (particularly Spanish)
  • African American history
  • Mathematics and other GED instruction
  • Fiction in all genres, especially urban lit, thrillers, manga, fantasy, and sci-fi

Please Note:

Wisconsin Books To Prisoners operates in accordance with Wisconsin Department of Correction (DOC) policies, which require that books be softcover, in good condition and free of highlighting, underlining, stains, or marks of any kind. In addition, WBTP is currently not accepting textbooks published before 2018.

Thank you!
