ALA Library attendees visit prison

During the American Library Association Conference in Washington DC. LSSPS organised a visit to a Maryland Prison.  The group included library school students, professors, prison librarians from other states, and some who were just curious about prison life.    The Warden at JCI  welcomed the group, and escorted them around the education and library building.

What am I reading?  Just finished reading: The Other Wes Moore.   Two guys from Baltimore with the same name.  One is in a Maryland Prison serving life sentence for murder.  The other is a Rhodes scholar.

Standing center front:   Diane Walden, Chair of the Prisoners Forum and Glennor Shirley, Library Coordinator, Maryland Correctional Education Libraries. Behind Diane is Warden John Wolfe.
