World Book Bank is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to reducing the cycle of incarceration through its reading program made available to men and women in jails and prisons throughout the United States.  There are over 2 million people locked up in this country at any given time.  We have by far the highest incarceration rate in the world, and historically, over half of those released from prison are re-arrested within three years.

It has been shown in repeated studies that those participating in reading programs while incarcerated are significantly less likely to be re-arrested when released.  The books donated by World Book Bank provide people with hope that success in life is available to everyone, regardless of the past.  Readers are empowered with tools that can change their lives forever.
