Sign up for the next tour of the women's prison

If you're interested in getting to know more about the FLIF/GELA partnership with the Edmonton Institution for Women and the multiple opportunities for volunteer involvement, sign yourself up for a prison tour. Let Kirsten know before October 23 so you can fill out security clearance. Here are the deets:

"GELA has organized another tour of the Edmonton Institution for Women (11151 - 178 Street) for Saturday, November 7 at 3 p.m. Any interested members of the library community are welcome to sign up for the tour. Cathy, the inmate librarian will be leading the tour so you can learn first hand about all the great GELA library projects, like our bookclubs and Storybook project.

A list of participants and their completed security clearance forms must be submitted by me to the prison by Friday October 23. The tour lasts about 1 ½ hours and can accommodate approximately 12 people so sign up soon!

To sign up for the tour and receive your security clearance form, please email Kirsten Wurmann at kwurmann @

Thanks for your interest,


On behalf of the GELA Prison Library sub-committee"
