City officials announced Thursday a pilot program that will allow prison inmates to read books to their children through live video at neighborhood libraries.

The program, called "Stories Alive," will be launched in February at three branch libraries, likely in Frankford, Nicetown, and Kensington, said Titus Moolathara, who manages prison library services for the Free Library of Philadelphia.
