I visited the Women’s Prison Book Project this week, which is housed in the new Boneshaker Books behind Second Moon.  They’re an all volunteer organization that collects and distributes books to women and transgender folks in prisons all over the US.  They’re looking for donated paperback books–their most requested topics are dictionaries (English and Spanish), African American fiction, drug and alcohol recovery, abuse issues, arts and crafts, mysteries, and romance.  They’ve got a donation box outside of Boneshaker Books.  They’re also happy to have volunteers–especially in the summer, they said, when college students aren’t around.

This week’s Seward business is ArtiCulture, a nonprofit that offers art classes for kids and adults.  Sadly I wasn’t there while art making was going on, but I’ll go back again sometime.  They also have a little gift shop with some groovy things.

In case you noticed, sorry I didn’t put up photos last week.  I had a crazy busy week and wasn’t able to make time to photograph.
