Sep, 19 11 Post by: admin | No Comments


The Education Department maintains a Leisure and Legal Library operating 6 days a week (evenings Mon-Thu, days Mon-Sat). The Leisure Library has numerous books available for circulation and reference to include magazines, newspapers, career planning, multi-cultural studies, parenting, fiction and nonfiction selections. Additionally, the inter-library loan (ILL) program is available for inmates to check-out books at the Durham County Library. The Law Library at FMC Butner is one of the first electronic libraries at a Federal facility, currently, the Electronic Law Library (ELL) utilizes the LexislNexis system (which is one of the community standards for legal research commonly used by lawyers and courts). Legal computers are available and provide the majority of the required material; however, some of the material is still only available in hard copy form. An inmate who needs to use the law library services must contact the Library coordinator to establish an account. Reference and legal materials cannot be checked out and must be used in the Law Library only. Typewriters, photocopier, and paper are made available for inmates to type and copy their legal work.
