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:

  • Collection-building
  • 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
