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.

MCI-Framingham, located twenty-two miles west of Boston, is a medium-security state correctional facility specifically for female inmates.

The facility accommodates women of various classification levels, including those serving state sentences, county offenders, and those awaiting trial. Within its compound, MCI-Framingham comprises seven housing units and a two-story modular unit with over 120 beds. Additionally, it houses a health service unit and repurposes its old administration building for inmate programming.
