IT is hardly an exaggeration to say that the general public knows nothing about reading in prison—and very little of the conditions of life to‐day in, let us say, Wormwood Scrubs, Nottingham, or Holloway. Nor is it easy to obtain details of the prison libraries which are already in being, for only the Commissioners, the officials (including the educational advisers now attached to most of the large prisons), and those for whom they exist, have much practical knowledge of their present status or future possibilities.
