While incarcerated, reading is often the best use of time. Please note that books and magazines, puzzles, and word searches ordered for inmates must come directly from the publisher. This policy ensures that the items are new, untampered, and comply with the facility's regulations. Prisons and jails enforce this rule to prevent the introduction of contraband or prohibited materials. By restricting orders to publishers, the facility can better maintain security and control over the content entering the institution. Any books or magazines not received directly from the publisher will be rejected and not delivered to the inmate.

The HMCC serves as Alaska's designated facility for female prisoners, situated in Eagle River. With 11 buildings spanning approximately 120,000 square feet, the institution occupies about 63 acres of land adjacent to Eagle River. It has a capacity of approximately 400 inmates.

Hiland Mountain Correctional houses around 400 female inmates across multiple custody levels, providing a range of treatment programs. These include psychiatric units and a substance abuse treatment program, with an emphasis on developing self-control and problem-solving skills. The 48-week offender treatment program has shown positive outcomes, with many participants reporting reduced aggression and improved self-esteem.

Similar to male correctional facilities in Alaska, this women's facility offers educational courses covering basic and high school curricula. Additionally, inmates have access to vocational skill courses such as construction and building, along with programs focused on financial planning and parenting. These educational and vocational opportunities aim to equip inmates with essential skills for successful reintegration into society upon release.
