The Inside Books Project (IBP) is a books-to-prisons collective founded in 1998 in in Austin, Texas. IBP receives over 2,000 requests for literature a month from people incarcerated across the state. Over the years, recipients of IBP's free services have sent back art, poetry, writing, crafts, and other materials as a thank you for the free books and as an outlet of expression. The IBP Archive was founded in 2015 to preserve and share these narrative materials.

The IBP Archive is currently collaborating with the Texas After Violence Project (TAVP) on Sheltering Justice: Stories from the Intersection of COVID-19 and Mass Incarceration. See this collection for submissions related to ongoing experiences in Texas prisons during the Covid-19 pandemic.
