About meI am a prison librarian at ASP Phoenix West. Also I am teaching information literacy at the Community College. This collection is a prison library collection. Though I use a library software within the physical library to check out and check in books, it does not allow me to make collection visible to those who would like to know what books prison library needs. Having explored the Library Thing, I found out that I could have better ideas about books available to inmates and build a better collection. Also I am going to print visually more appealing catalog and place it within the library.
About my libraryThis Library is a small prison library for 500 inmates serving sentences for DUI. The length of sentences is from four month up to three years. The library introduces inmates to reading culture and supports their reading needs, serves as a remedy for idleness, provides tools for successful community reintegration and food for thoughts.
