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.

Larch is a minimum-security state prison housing approximately 480 adult male inmates across two minimum-security units: Silver Star and Elkhorn. Inmates have access to various educational and vocational programs, including stress and anger management courses, adult basic education classes, and opportunities to earn their GED. LCC is notably involved in a unique cat adoption program aimed at socializing and rehabilitating unsocial or dangerous cats through the retraining efforts of offenders. Once rehabilitated, these cats are returned to the Humane Society for adoption.

Medical, dental, and mental health services are provided to inmates, alongside vocational training opportunities such as automotive service and repair, electrician certification, and wastewater treatment certification. Religious worship services and support group meetings like Alcoholics/Narcotics Anonymous are available on-site. Additionally, inmates have the option to participate in community work crews, offering supervised labor to agencies in the surrounding area.

Program offerings at LCC span academic and partnership programs, research-based interventions like substance abuse treatment and cognitive-behavioral interventions, as well as various vocational training programs. These programs aim to equip inmates with essential life skills and prepare them for successful reintegration into society upon release.

One standout initiative is the Cat Adoption Program (LCAP), launched in 2011. LCAP partners with local humane societies, where volunteers work with offenders to teach rehabilitation techniques for cats. Once rehabilitated, these cats are made available for adoption through the humane societies, contributing to their successful rehoming and providing valuable opportunities for both inmates and the animals.
