HKF provides free books and newsletters to those who are incarcerated and to prison/jail staff members. We also send free books in quantity to facilities in the U.S. for use in their libraries or programs. To request free books for yourself or others, please send the complete name and mailing address to [email protected].
Most of our books are now also available through the Edovo app. As more facilities transition to using tablets, we are expanding our efforts to make our materials available electronically. Over 150 facilities, serving over 150,000 residents across the country, have partnered with Edovo, and our books (with the exception of Finding Freedom, Finding God Within, and When Things Fall Apart) and recent newsletters are now available to all of them. We hope to reach an even broader audience as Edovo expands its partnerships.
