Since 2000 The Church of the Damascus Road has provided opportunities for the inmates to read story books to their children, grandchildren or nephews and nieces. The books are donated by churches, individuals and libraries. A DVD disc, jewel case and envelope are provided free to the readers. The inmate selects one or two books which can be read in a 15 minute session. The reading is recorded in video on a computer, burned to a DVD and the inmate only pays for the postage to send the disk and book home.
