Operation Storybook

Operation Storybook is a monthly program through Lutheran Social Services run by volunteers from Friends on the Outside. Incarcerated mothers and grandmothers are screened and selected by lottery to be recorded on CD reading a book to their children/grandchildren. The tapes and books are then mailed to the children. Approximately 30 women are able to participate per session. This is expected to enhance the bonds between mothers and their children/grandchildren, easing the difficulty of separation.
