"The Friends of the Newark Free Library have spent months building a collection of more than 4,000 books its members are unlikely to use."
"That's because the reading materials are shelved behind about 10 locked steel doors and five chain-link security fences at Delaware Correctional Center near Smyrna."
"The volunteer group decided to collect the used books after learning budget constraints prevented the state from stocking a second library built as part of a prison expansion last year."
"We had lovely book shelves. We had no books," the prison's treatment administrator, Ronald G. Hosterman, said." (from The News Journal)
