Prison Library Project

CELSIR started the Prison Library Project in 2020 as an intervention in the aftermath of the #ENDSARS protest that led to the burning of the prison library in the Medium Security Custodial Centre, Ikoyi as a result of an attempted jailbreak. With the support of the Ford Foundation, CELSIR set up a 21 user library that houses materials that cut across different genres in various formats. The Library also has an E-library session that would be particularly useful for  incarcerated individuals pursuing different degrees at the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN).
