Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I send books and publications to an inmate in prison?

A: Inamtes have the opportunity to read books in jail through our partnership with the Monroe County Library. However, if family members and friends wish to send paperback books and periodicals to inmates, they may do so. The only stipulation is that paperback books and periodicals must be sent directly from the publisher.

Please note:, Barnes & Noble, and other physical or internet-based bookstores are notpublishers. They sell, distribute, and ship books. If a bookstore sends a book, that book may be returned to the sender.
