Prison & Re-Entry Services
 
Project Description:
 
The Free Library of Philadelphia started a pilot for Prison & Re-Entry services, which was successful.  In 2013, a Free Library staff member with prior experience in the state prison system expressed an interest in continuing to work with the prison population. Upon discovering that the Philadelphia Department of Prisons (PDP) was devoid of libraries, he began a pilot with the cooperation of PDP staffers at the Curran-Fromhold Correctional Facility (CFCF). He established a small-scale library in one of the wings of the prison with no budget, using weeded books from the Free Library’s collection.  Since 2013, the partnership with PDP has expanded and libraries have been established at Riverside Correctional Facility (RCF, the women’s unit) and Alternative and Special Detention, along with CFCF.  We offer returning citizens a library card and information packet containing background and contact information about organizations that provide GED services, healthcare, employment, legal services, housing, and library services, among other services.
 
Question/Problem Statement:
What is the question that needs to be answered or the problem that needs be solved?

As a library, we have become experts in collecting data on “typical” library services, but when it comes to prison and re-entry services, we are novices.  What are the best methods for us as a library to measure our desired outcomes like reduced recidivism, family literacy, social connectedness, and job readiness?
 
Statement of Why:
Why does the library need this answer/solution? What will the library be able to do after it has this answer/solution?

It helps us to further meet the goals of our strategic plan and prepare us as we seek to assess impact beyond outputs like attendance and customer satisfaction.

Andre,

The Stories Alive program is so cool! Well, the program as a whole is wonderful, but I love the idea of Stories Alive. It uses modern technology to address a number of age old problems!
