"The California State Library has awarded the Southern California Library Cooperative (SCLC) a grant for $371,000 to provide text books and recreational reading materials to California Prisons. These funds provided through the Library Services Training Act (LSTA), are being granted to support an important need - new materials and textbooks in prison libraries. The monies granted are being used to furnish textbooks to three California prisons. These include adult prisons San Quentin and Ironwood and juvenile prison, the Ventura Youth Correctional Facility. Recreational reading materials are being sent to all California prisons."
Remember that scene in Shawshank Redemption where the prisoner's are unpacking the books and that one guy calls "Dumas" "Dumb Ass?" Me, too. That was funny. That's about all I got here. Go prison education! Now if we can only fund those prison football teams.
Also, how bad ass is it there's a prison called "Ironwood?" That's Tolkien/Martin naming right there, buddy.
