The Placer County Jail will not accept used books, hardback books and books ordered from distributors not listed on the authorized list of vendors. If ordering books on-line from the authorized list of vendors, you may only order new books. To ensure your books are being ordered correctly, make sure the sellers name is one of the authorized vendors and not a secondary vendor with a link on the authorized vendors’ web-site. Inmates are permitted to purchase, receive, and read paperback books, newspapers, or periodicals accepted for distribution by the U.S. Post Office. The exception is for those items determined by the Jail Commander that may pose a threat to the safety and security of the facility. Books and periodicals sent by a distributor approved by Jail Administration will be accepted: Amazon, Bartleby, Zooba, and Christian Book Distributor, Peabody MA. No pages or pictures removed from books or periodicals will be accepted and, if included in incoming mail, may cause the entire letter to be returned to sender.
