Can I send books to an inmate?
CCR Title 15 Section 3134.1 covers the mailing in of books. Books must be soft covered and sent from a departmentally approved book distributor, book store or publisher. Additional information may be located in DOM, Chapter 5, Section 54010.8.
Books must be sent in directly from a book distributor.

Inmates may have only 10 books in their possession. When they receive new books, they must turn in their old ones. These old books must be donated or sent home at the inmate's expense. Most inmates donate their books to the library, etc.

Most families use Barnes and Noble or one of the other departmentally approved vendors. A departmentally approved vendor is any publisher, book store, or book distributor that does mail order business. Please note that Amazon is no longer a departmentally approved vendor for books. If you are having a book sent in from a college or some other non-traditional book distributor, please check with the prison first.
