prison libraries

We've had prison librarians come talk at Barco and one of the questions people always ask is what sorts of books they have, what books prisoners read, and what books are forbidden. The New York Times has a story about prison libraries and their collection development (actually more like collection un-development) policies. Apparently a bureau of the Justice Department has a Standardized Chapel Library Project, which entails removing some religious books from prison libraries.
