Welcome. My name is Gary, and I work in the Durland Alternatives Library. I have worked here for more than 13 years, and after completing my first year, the Prisoner Express (PE) program was created. The program’s origin was inspired upon receiving a letter from an inmate, Danny Harris, stationed in Texas. Danny’s excellent writing truly was what moved me to begin a free book program fostering prison education through independent studies. Over the years PE has evolved into much more than ever anticipated. Today, it has grown larger than one person is able to manage alone, so fortunately, our volunteers and work-study students make time to help out.
