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 rooms encourage family literacy by providing
a pleasant and comfortable setting for both child and incarcerated
parent. Each room is stocked with a wide variety of children’s
books and has an inmate narrator who reads to the visiting children
twice a day. The role of the inmate narrator is to read picture
books to the children in much the same manner that children’s
hour would be done at a public library.
A variety of arts and craft supplies for the children are
also available in most of the rooms. Many of the supplies
and books are donated by employees and service
organizations. [Back to top]
