Stories From the Heart


*What is Stories From the Heart?

Stories from the Heart is a program in partnership with the Simpson County Detention Center. We bring in donated books and volunteers help incarcerated persons choose a book and record themselves reading it to a child. The Literacy Center then transfers the recordings onto a CD and mails the book and CD to the child!

*When is the book drive?

October 21-31

*What books are needed?

Any new or gently used soft cover children's book infant through young adult! We cannot bring hardback into the detention center. Click here for our Amazon wish list!

*How can I help?

We take new or gently used books all year.

If you would like to volunteer give us a call and we will tell you about our next volunteer training session!
