ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – If you have some magazines or paperback books that are just lying around, consider donating them to the Roanoke City Sheriff’s Office.
The Roanoke City Jail’s reading program has no budget and relies on donations from the public.
The jail says that all donations must be paperback.
Jennifer Kolesar, the Roanoke City Jail’s Correction’s Librarian, says detainees often request reading materials but can also request a specific topic, author or genre and she can help them find what they are looking for.
Donations can be dropped off at the Roanoke City Jail on Campbell Avenue.
