UNESCO Promotes Free Ebook on Prison Libraries

UNESCO is making a book on prison libraries freely available online. Books Beyond Bars: The Transformative Potential of Prison Libraries, by Lisa Krolak, was published by the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) in 2019.

The announcement states, “This publication explores the extent to which prison authorities fulfil their societal mandate to rehabilitate and reintegrate inmates by enabling them to use prison libraries to pursue their right to education. … [It] takes a closer look at selected examples of prison library systems around the world, outlining best practice and possible challenges, thus demonstrating their transformative potential as informational, educational, cultural and recreational meeting and learning spaces.”

For more information, read the announcement.
