To First Christian Church of Carbondale,
The 3R’s (Reading Reduces Recidivism) Project wishes to thank the members and friends of First Christian Church in Carbondale for their consistent concern for incarcerated persons. Your frequent book donations and the use of the annex storage room have been an invaluable source of support for the 3Rs Project.
The 3Rs Project of supplying free books to southern Illinois correctional centers continues through the participation of the Carbondale Public Library, Sallie Logan Public Library in Murphysboro, and Wild Thyme book store in Carbondale. If you wish to make future donations of books to the 3R’s Project, please bring them to these locations. Although your donated books will not be set aside specifically for 3Rs, any books chosen by correctional center staff at these locations will be made available at no charge.
