Prison Library Project seeking texts, monetary donations

The community is invited to help support the Claremont Forum’s fall resource drive to help the nonprofit’s Prison Library Project fill requests from inmates seeking educational materials.

Materials requested include such texts such as 2022 Merriam-Webster thesauruses, dictionaries (including Spanish-to-English variants) vocabulary builders, almanacs and fact books. Donations can be made to the nonprofit bookstore, located on the first floor of the Packing House, 586 W. First St., Claremont. To conform with prison guidelines, any books purchased on behalf of the Prison Library Project must be new paperback editions. No hardback books are allowed .

Monetarily donations to the drive can also be made at Any amount helps, but $10 can supply two Spanish-English dictionaries, $25 can cover five such texts, $40 can support five dictionaries and cost of shipping, $50 can supply 10 Spanish-English dictionaries, and $100 will send almanacs and academic resources. There’s also an option to write-in any amount online.

The nonprofit’s goal is to raise $5,000 during the drive to help supply and ship the requested texts. For information call (909) 626-3066 or email
