Do prisoners have access to non-religious books?

ACA member Manuel Serratos has become the local champion for the Inside Book Project, which collects and donates books to Texas prisoners. 

The IBP donates books in several categories. But the supply comes mostly from private donations, which reflect the Texan profile, religious. There are way too many religious books and simple novels, with little left to science. Religion is strongly preached in jail, regardless the little or no effect it has on reducing crime. Those people have had a very limited knowledge supply through their lives and more needs to be done. 

If you have books that you would like to donate, bring them to a Regular Sunday Meeting where Manuel, a regular attendee, will accept them. Alternatively, you can donate them directly. This is a great way to give hungry minds some great food for thought.

Atheist Community of Austin

The Atheist Community of Austin is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting positive atheism and the separation of church and state. The ACA serves the local Austin community through outreach programs, providing informational resources and various volunteer activities. In addition, the ACA serves the community-at-large through free online portals including informational wikis, regular audio/video podcasts and interactive blogs.

We define atheism as the lack of belief in gods. This definition also encompasses what most people call agnosticism.
