Colorado’s youth and adult correctional facility libraries are the information centers for their residents. The State Library’s Institutional Library Development team works hard to ensure residents have quality materials to:
- support efforts toward self-improvement and successful reintegration into society
- increase literacy levels
- promote reading as a constructive use of leisure time
- teach effective use of libraries
Assistance in helping us meet these goals is greatly appreciated. To help the public donate useful materials, there are new guidelines for Department of Corrections libraries.
For more information about how you can donate to any state institutional library, contact Camden Tadhg, acquisitions and youth institutions consultant at the State Library.
