Book Drive for Idaho State Correctional Facilities @ Idaho Falls Police Department

Education is a key factor in the rehabilitation of inmates and their ability to achieve success after their release. The libraries in the correctional institutes both adult and juvenile in Idaho are lacking books and the Juvenile Justice Centers have not rotated their multiple libraries in a long time. Fresh books, nonfiction, fiction and educational are very much appreciated.
Please remember no spiral bindings and appropriate themes such as no sexual content whatsoever for the juvenile facilities and anime must be clean. Also remember that any material that has themes such as breaking out of prison, prison riots, making weapons or distilleries in prison, etc are not acceptable. They do prefer paperback books but they can accept some hardcover books.
