Remain in Touch Program

Remain in Touch is a 501(c)(3) non-profit literacy program offered at the Leelanau County Jail. Through this program, inmates have the opportunity to select a free book for each of their children ages 0-12 years. As the inmate reads the book aloud, the story is recorded. Both the recording and book are sent to their individual children, allowing the parent to Remain in Touch, bridging the gap that exists during the time of their incarceration.
 
The benefits of this program are immeasurable. The children are able to listen to their parents reading to them as often as they wish, because the books and recordings are theirs to keep. Sharing books in this way serves as a reminder that neither parent nor child has been forgotten. This program helps families stay connected now and into the future.
 
Brilliant Books partners with Remain in Touch to help provide this opportunity, offering a discount of 20% for all donated books. Books for this program can be purchased using the links below, by phone, or in-store.* Donated books will be conveniently collected by Brilliant Books and delivered to Remain in Touch on your behalf.
