Since CAL's Books Beyond Bars (BBB) initiative began in November 2016, we have sent out over 800 packages of reading material. Even better, we’ve mailed over 1,000 books and magazines to clients in 2018 alone. Although our program has been an incredible success, we sometimes receive requests for books that are too expensive for our budget. We have created an Amazon Wish List with books we would love to be able to send our clients. With your generosity, we would be able to make sure every request on this list gets fulfilled! If nothing from the list stands out, we welcome donations in our most-requested genres: criminal law and procedure, self-help, business and money, thrillers and suspense, and urban fiction.BBB Wishlist
