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 Indiana Women’s Prison stands as a cornerstone in correctional history, being the oldest and first adult facility for females in the United States. Since its establishment in 1872, it has provided crucial services to incarcerated women. After 136 years at its original Randolph Street location, the prison relocated to its current site on North Girls School Road in 2009. With a capacity exceeding 700, the facility caters to female inmates requiring specialized care.

Notably, the Officer Breann Leath Memorial Maternal-Child Health Unit exemplifies the prison's commitment to family preservation. This unit allows incarcerated mothers to stay with their children while providing education and resources for successful re-entry. Additionally, the facility offers comprehensive resources and treatment for mental health, substance abuse, and domestic violence, alongside numerous educational opportunities.
