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.

Ketchikan CC is a multi-level intake adult correctional center serving pre-trial and sentenced misdemeanants and felons of any gender and all custody levels. KCC, serving southern Southeast Alaska, including Ketchikan, Wrangell, Petersburg, Prince of Wales Island, and Metlakatla, commenced operations in 1983. Occupying about 3 acres with three buildings, it has a maximum capacity of 58 and accommodates both sentenced and unsentenced males and females. Staffed by 39 individuals, KCC caters to all custody levels. Notably, the facility played a significant role in restoring a four-clan totem on-site, led by a master carver with assistance from inmates. Situated within an old rock quarry, surrounded by mountains and forest, wildlife sightings on the premises are common.

KCC offers a range of educational, recreational, and religious programs. Educational programs focus on easy diagnosis and assessment, with organized classes of short duration and opportunities for independent study. Academic assessment is mandatory for all new inmates, covering areas such as adult basic education, GED studies, career counseling, and life skills classes. While postsecondary classes are not directly provided, the Education Coordinator assists in facilitating access to colleges offering written coursework.

The computer lab offers programs in keyboarding, word processing, desktop publishing, Alaska career information, and enrichment software. The facility's library, supplemented by the Ketchikan City Library's outreach service, contains approximately 2,500 volumes, along with videos and a diverse range of curriculum and resource materials. These programs and resources aim to support mental stimulation, social interaction, and skill development among the inmate population at KCC.
