Some years back, Adrienne Crawford got wind of a requirement and resolved to act on it. The orange County Jail requires to provide inmates with books to occupy their time and enhance their minds. Crawford being the owner of Goshen Jewelers in the village, she knows her shop is easily accessible for volunteers who wish to take up this all-volunteer, book-gathering project.
Her plan eventually succeeded. The small handwritten sign in her front window has already produced thousands of books. On a weekly basis, she works alone carrying boxes of books to her car then delivering them to the penitentiary.
She usually finds the deputy’s assistance lugging them inside. She states that people bring all book types like nonfiction, fiction, religious books such as Bibles, informational, dictionaries, and how-to books.
Crawford requests that you retain the book collection in mind when moving or downsizing as books are difficult to arrange and if you donate them to the cause they might impact someone’s life in the prison. A sergeant at the penitentiary stated that they need more books in the library. It is not temporary project but a project in progress to gather as many types of books for the Orange County Jail.
