Program Description

Event Details

Join the library and Iowa's Wrongful Conviction Division to learn some practical tips for supporting and staying in touch with loved ones in prison. We'll talk about the legal process of a criminal case (arrest to prison to parole), accessing information from the Department of Corrections, and making visits, as well as how to navigate the restrictions on books and mail.



The library makes every effort to ensure our programs can be enjoyed by all. If you have any concerns about accessibility or need to request specific accommodations, please contact the library.
