Redesign of Libraries in Chilean Prisons

The following paper shows the state of progress of a project of setting up modern libraries in Chilean prisons, designed to execute its implementation phase between 2015 and 2019. Based on the experiences of an old plan, launched in the early 1980s, parallel strategies have been developed for the installation and implementation, with the main objective of awakening interest in reading and providing tools that improve the quality of life inside the prison and the possibilities of returning to the free environment without the need to commit a crime again. Currently, in the middle of this process, the strategies we are testing are established, we have seen the impacts, as well as the adaptability they have to the characteristics of each prison and the projections that intend to sustain the program over time.
