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 Hall County Correctional Institute serves a dual purpose, meeting the workforce needs of the county and cities while fulfilling obligations to the Georgia Department of Corrections (GDC). Under contract with the department, the institute houses 200 inmates, generating approximately $1.6 million annually for Hall County. Through its inmate labor force, the Correctional Institution provides essential services to county departments, including Parks and Leisure, Road Maintenance, Resource Recovery, and Solid Waste, as well as Gainesville City Public Works and Parks and Recreation. In 2022 alone, inmate work details contributed an estimated $2.9 million in free labor to the county.

In 2014, the institution launched the innovative Re-entry Accountability Court Transition (REACT) program. Designed for Hall and Dawson residents returning from state prison, REACT offers intensive programming, educational upgrades, and employment opportunities before parole or probation release. The REACT program targets offenders returning to the Northeastern Judicial Circuit with two to three years remaining on their sentence, focusing primarily on drug and non-violent offenders. Participants undergo a personalized program plan based on risk and need assessment, encompassing a range of courses from motivational training to workforce development skills. Participants in the REACT program are housed in a transitional center facility, where they receive support in securing employment that offers a living wage and benefits. The program emphasizes personal responsibility, requiring participants to cover rent, transportation, and other expenses. Ultimately, the REACT program aims to enhance public safety, reduce government costs, and diminish recidivism rates. By fostering partnerships and providing comprehensive support, the program endeavors to reintegrate offenders into the community as productive and law-abiding citizens.
