Men’s Central Jail (MCJ), held dedication ceremony to reveal renovated newly stocked Library

September 27, 2016

On Tuesday, September 27, 2016, a dedication ceremony was held to reveal the

renovated area within Men's Central Jail (MCJ), where now stands a newly

stocked library. It was a collaborative effort between the Inmate Services

Bureau - Education Based Incarceration Unit, MCJ staff and a partnership

with community members.



This effort began after a mother used to send books to her son while he was

incarcerated at Men's Central Jail. According to her, she and her son had

in-depth discussions about the books over the phone. Once her son was released

from jail, she contacted the EBI staff at MCJ and shared her story and vision.

She asked if she and her friends could donate books to the inmates. The library

will now provide inmates with access to a wide range of captivating,

high-interest books.



Inmate Services Bureau's Captain Victor Allende, Men's Central Jail's Captain

Agustin Del Valle and EBI staff presented letters of appreciation and bouquets

of flowers to the community members (Sharon Gam, Michele Lynch, Robin Venturelli,

and Hilary Satz) who were responsible for the donation of over 1000 new library books.
