GELA Prison Project
Founded in 2007, the GELA Prison Project is a group of volunteers who provide library resources and programs to correctional facilities located in the Edmonton area, including the Edmonton Institution for Women and the Edmonton Institution.
Our work includes:
- Inmate book clubs
- A storybook project (inmates record themselves reading aloud and recordings are sent to children in their families)
- A book borrowing project that allows inmates to access materials from the Edmonton Public Library
