Jail Library Student Group

The JLG’s mission is to provide educational, recreational, and community resource reading materials to the people in the jail facilities in Dane County, Wisconsin. Our goals are:

To meet the educational, recreational, and community resource reading needs of the inmates.
To locate and share useful community resources with inmates that will help them or their families address and solve their needs.
To educate the volunteers and the local community about issues related to incarceration, poverty, crime, justice, and fairness that are a part of and affect our community, but of which many of us are not aware.
To improve the criminal justice system by involving the community, through volunteer service, in the process.
To provide a safe and constructive environment for diverse people to come together, share, and learn from each other.
