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.

Unique Programs -Faith-Based Reentry Dorm is a collaborative initiative and includes the following ministries: Alpha, Celebrate Recovery, Evangelism Explosion, Prison Fellowship, and Promise Keepers. We have several volunteer ministries as well, offering group and individual mentoring. Faith-Based housing is also available for the men upon their release.

Reading Room - The reading rooms encourage family literacy by providing a pleasant and comfortable setting for both child and incarcerated parent. Each room is stocked with a wide variety of children’s books and has an inmate narrator who reads to the visiting children twice a day. The role of the inmate narrator is to read picture books to the children in much the same manner that children’s hour would be done at a public library. A variety of arts and craft supplies for the children are also available in most of the rooms. Many of the supplies and books are donated by employees and service organizations.

Visitation Information

ODRC - Madison Correctional Institution - Visitation

Visitation days are based on the inmate’s institution number. Inmate numbers ending with an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, 8) will visit on the even numbered dates of the month. Inmate numbers ending with an odd number (1,3,5,7,9) will visit on the odd numbered dates of the month.

Visitation periods are “split sessions” with each session counted as a single visit for the month. For example:

  • 1st visitation session – 8a.m. to 11:15 am = 1 visit
  • 2nd visitation session – 11:45 am to 3 pm = 1 visit

Visitors must arrive before 10 a.m. for the 1st visitation session and 1 p.m. for the 2ndvisitation session.

Only four visitors per inmate can visit at each visitation session. Children aged 2 and above are counted as a visitor toward the total number of visitors regardless of the child’s size.

MaCI will only accept visitors who have a reservation. You will be given a confirmation number once your reservation has been approved. You must have this number the day you arrive to visit for verification purposes.

Our recommended method of making a reservation is by utilizing our online reservation option. This option is available 24/7; however please allow 72 hours for a response from the visiting department. Submit an email to DRC.VisitationMaCI@odrc.state.oh.us with the following information:

  • Date & session of visit
  • Inmate last name and inmate number
  • Complete name of each visitor coming to visit

o Adult visitor(s) full first and last names as it appears on their visit application / State I.D.

o Minors (under the age of 18); full name and relationship (if any) to the inmate.

§ Example:

· Jane Doe + 2 minors (Tom Doe- son and Sue Doe – daughter) to see inmate Doe #A123-456 on 11/15/16 at 12:15 pm.

We hope this process will simplify the visit reservation process for all involved.

Reservations can also be taken from 8 am to 1 pm SUNDAY, MONDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY AND SATURDAY by calling (740) 852-1411. Visitation is closed on Tuesday and Wednesday, and all state-recognized holidays.
