Sheriff Receives Book Donations for Inmates
Sheriff Rand Henderson and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office – Jail Division thanks the community for the generous donations of books received from the community for the jail’s inmate library. The large quantity of books will provide individuals detained in the facility with a diverse selection of reading material. Sheriff Henderson highlighted the New Waverly Public Library for their sizeable contribution to our library.
On July 7, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office – Jail Division shared the need for reading material for the inmate population. During individual’s detainment in the facility, reading materials are distributed weekly by request. Many individuals become avid readers while detained, and the Sheriff Office wants to encourage this behavior by keeping an ample supply of diverse reading material in the jail’s library. The jail’s most popular book genres are westerns, science fiction, and contemporary. The Sheriff’s Office also encouraged the donation of easy-to-read books for individuals with lower reading levels.
The jail can only accept paperback books. Donations must be made to the jail, and not individual inmates.
