I was listening to a radio broadcast about prisons and how men's and women's are different (the NPR host was advocating that Women's prisons need to
allow for more diversity in dress b/c women care more about their appearance and they NEED to express themselves through their dress... - /Facepalm)
and it got me thinking about prison libraries and especially the legal section and educational within them.
I know a lot of inmates often do studies while serving time, some spend time reading various books and some focus on legal studies. I'm wondering how
prisons allocate $ for their libraries, how comprehensive they are, if they allow for transfer of books between outside libraries or other prisons,
etc. If a prisoner wants a book do they have any means of requesting it either permanently for the prison or temporarily?
If the prison's have law books, do they provide books about state and federal law, case studies, etc? Are there any programs that allow for people to
donate books to prisons or do prisons even need this types of thing?
