Give the gift that keeps on giving! Paperback books are allowed to be sent to most institutions. There's one catch, though. You can't just send the books yourself in a box. They must come directly from the publisher. Books sent through Amazon will be accepted.
When ordering through Amazon, be sure to specify shipping through U.S. Postal Service. As always, include the inmate's ID number on the address label. Adding it to the name field in the delivery address works best. Use the specified address for inmate mail, usually a P.O. Box address.
Also make sure the books you are ordering are paperback and new. Prisons will not accept "used" books.
When ordering for an inmate, please be aware of the institutions rules about which types of books will be allowed. Also be mindful of limits. Some prisons limit the number of books that can be sent at one time.
