JANESVILLE, Wis. - The Rock County Sheriff's Office is collecting soft-cover books for inmates of the Rock County jail.
From Jan. 22 to Feb. 2, the Sheriff's Office will be holding a book drive for members of the community to donate.
In a press release, the sheriff said that books can make a difference for inmates in managing boredom and stress.
The jail needs more books and books in better condition. The statement said the jail doesn't always have the funds to cover buying books, despite budgeting for it.
Anyone interested in donating soft-cover books to the jail can drop them off at the Sheriff's Office in Rock County, at 200 East Highway 14 in Janesville, Wisconsin.
