Many institutions participate in fostering and training abandoned dogs for adoption.
In 2000, former First Lady Hope Taft approached the Director
about establishing a reading room for the children who
visited their incarcerated parent at the Pickaway
Correctional Institution. This idea spread across the state,
and now the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction
maintains children’s reading rooms in each prison.
The reading room at LeCI is stocked with a wide variety of children’s books. The child and guardian may select a book from the reading room to take back to their designated visiting table. We encourage the incarcerated parent to take the selected book and read to child. The opportunity to read to a child can build a bond and it can also help to foster a lifelong love of books.[Back to top]
