Shipping Books to Correctional Institutions
When shipping books to inmates at correctional institutions, we urge you to pay careful attention to the facility’s regulations and procedures. Facilities differ on the items they permit. Most correctional institutions require packages, even magazines for inmates, to arrive via the United States Postal Service. It is extremely important that you provide us with complete and accurate information when sending books to inmates.
The inmate's name, inmate's institution number, and the full name and address of the facility are important. The facility’s name must be spelled out. Abbreviations are not acceptable. If a publication is not properly addressed, delivery to the inmate may be denied. We also cannot allow gifts to be sent anonymously to inmate. The sender's billing address will appear on the order invoice.
Because inmates cannot sign for deliveries, packages must be sent via U.S. Mail Only. Our shipping method to Correctional Institutions is the United States Postal Service (USPS).
If you are sending items to an inmate, follow this format when entering the address information during at checkout:
