Winston County Library & WCCRF Work Together to Better Prison Library

The Winston County Library and the Winston/Choctaw Correctional Facility work together each year to help in the accreditation process for the facility. Librarian Beth Edwards (left) provides training and suggestions for the prison library. Edwards conducted training last week with (from left) Alexis Bush, Administrative Assistant; Anthony McIntosh, Chaplain and Dirk Hutchinson, Inmate Librarian (back). “I am so impressed with the improvements I saw last week in the library at WCCRF. And in the coming months, we are going to work together to add even more opportunities for reading and learning at the prison, if possible”, said Edwards. “I believe this is very important work, not only for the standing for our local prison, but for the inmates themselves.”
