Proposed rule-change allowing USED books into Oregon prisons - your input is needed!

Dear Friends,

There is a comment period that ends May 26th for a rule change being proposed by the Oregon Department of Corrections that would greatly benefit Oregon prisoners. This rule change would also make the efforts of Books to Prisoners volunteers a whole lot easier!

This rule would allow prisoners to receive USED books! Please voice your support for this rule change by copying and modify the sample letter below and getting it in the mail by no later than Saturday May 24th, so it is sure to arrive by the deadline of May 26th - Even if you don't have a stamp or the time, please just write the letter (now) and email it to us at: pdxbookstoprisoners@riseup.net with your name and address - then we'll print it off and mail it for you!

These have to arrive by next monday May 26th, so
letters need to be in the mail by saturday may 24th.
