City Books is partnering with Jailbreak, an autonomous, free-form coalition of abolitionists in Pittsburgh working to support incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people inside of Allegheny County Jail, to develop the Shuman Juvenile Detention Center recreational library.

At this time, we are no longer collecting used books for the project.

However, the community is still welcome to make financial contributions to the City Books Shuman Library Fund that will be used to purchase new books for the Shuman library. Donations can be made via credit card using the form below, or checks can be made out to City Books LLC and mailed to 908 Galveston Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15233. Please note “Shuman Library Fund” in the memo section.
