Working With Prisons & Detention Centres:

Bright Books have been working with prisons for twenty years. We have pioneered many initiatives to try to make the job of the prison librarian just that little bit easier. Sourcing books, magazines, music and films from all parts of the world, listening to you and reacting, attending conference every year, make us the perfect supplier for you.

Diversity in Prison: 

With the prison population becoming more and more diverse, Bright Books has in place a large number of solutions available for the modern prison library. All under one roof (or on one website) our range is as diverse as your needs. Alongside the conventional English Language fiction and Non Fiction selections, we have material for those whose reading skills are limited, those who need foreign languages and those who want to learn English. 

Well Being: 

We also have a comprehensive selection of material related to personal development, health and well-being, exercise, hobbies and interests as well as a large and eclectic selection of education books. We know that some inmates are allowed further materials so we have a selection of DVDs and increasingly popular World Music.  We even have a selection of books to keep the little ones happy for those of you that have a visitor waiting area or crèche.


We are able to supply prison libraries with a range of educational material, whether learning simple life skills to enable a smoother transition upon release,  books that are aimed at high interest low ability readers or even hobbies and interests; driving, animals, cooking, sport/keep-fit, writing a CV etc. Contact us let us know what you're looking for and we'll help.
