Press Photo by Linda Sailer Josie Schieno, 5, picks out a favorite spider with the help of children's librarian Jessica Un at the Dickinson Area Public Library on Thursday. The spiders contain wishes for children's books or CD players so that moms incarcerated at the Dakota Women's Correctional Rehabilitation Center can read and record a story for their children.

Children with absent parents will have an opportunity to listen to storybooks read and recorded by their parents through the VoiceBook Project.

The project is coordinated by AmericCorps VISTA worker Chelsea Mann of Dickinson through the RSVP-Plus program.

Volunteers will go into the Dakota Women's Correctional and Rehabilitation Center in New England on Friday, Nov. 5, to record the women reading the storybooks.
