Programs at MCIW

Herb Malveaux is our new librarian at the Maryland Correctional Institution for Women (MCIW). His public library background enables him to introduce a wide variety of programs in the library. His supervisor's comment on his recent program says it all.
" Last week, Herb Malveaux planned a special program in "origami" for the women here at MCI-W (23 participated). It was exciting to watch the women face challenges using their motor skill and thinking through directions. The women loved the experience and, of course, wanted more! Colorful frogs and birds hopped and flew through the library. Also there was lots of chatter and team work. It was a great choice of program for the women."

Hi there! This may be the wrong place to ask this, but I'm about to finish my MLS (December!!) and have been very interested in prison libraries; however, with so many budget cuts I fear that there are very few positions even available. Is there a good job resource for correctional facility libraries you could recommend?
