Services For the Incarcerated

Santa Clara County Library District (SCCLD), in partnership with the Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE), opens a new window and the Santa Clara County Probation Department, opens a new window, provides library service to youth at our county’s Juvenile Justice Center in San Jose and the Juvenile Rehabilitation Facility in Morgan Hill. Libraries at these locations provide youth access to professionally curated library materials, programs and activities, as well as other activities to prompt interaction and engagement. SCCLD has a full-time Teen librarian on-site to work with youth, staff and partners.

SCCLD’s Strategic Plan prioritizes welcoming all, providing inclusive and compassionate library service throughout the district, as well as connecting patrons to relevant resources for life transitions.

SCCLD and its partners are currently working to create additional library spaces at other correctional facilities in the county.
