Prison Library Questions

I get many questions from library school students who consider prison librarianship. Earlier in this blog (2008 blog archive)I have some FAQs. They may also get some insight from "Behind the Walls" column. The most recent question was from someone who had been incarcerated wanting to know if that would be an impediment to getting a job as a prison librarian. In Maryland it would be a problem as 2 years ago I tried to hire someone who had worked as a media specialist for over 20 years, but was caught with marijuana. No way said the DOC. I Would love to hear from other states.
