YA Lit: 70s/80s?

Hey there — a SLIS professor has asked if we are interested in several cartons of 1970s, 1980s, and a few 1990s YA books. She says they aren’t gorgeous to look at, but they are excellent stories. If we accepted these, we could take them and divvy up between women’s / men’s prisons. Maybe some for Bissell? What are your thoughts?

    I think its a good idea to divide them up between places and yes YA books would be great for the women inmates. Lots of requests have been for YA books. Let’s do it. I can pick up and I’m at the prison regularly.

    I’ve dropped 5 boxes of books off at the prison to Karra’s attention. I weeded out some of the more beat-up books, and hope that the women get some good use out of these.

    WOW! Thanks Allison! Did you email Karra to let her know the boxes are there? I can email her if you want, just let me know.

    Next book club is Saturday Nov 7th so any other books to go to the prison library just let me know and I’ll pick them up.

    I did email her – and she said they were good to go.

    I might have some more books to go to prison — that would be awesome if we could arrange a handoff to you.

    Right now, UA is giving me stuff for the community bookshelf (men’s and women’s materials) but if I find anything that is good for EIFW, will hold too. (esp anything Tanya’s posted as requested).
