Dear Sir / Madam,
I'm compiling a short report on prison libraries in Scandinavia. Would you please point me in the direction of some information that would generally describe the provision of library facilities in Finnish prisons? Eg, are these centrally funded? Do they fall under the legislation for public libraries? How are they administered? Do all prisons have good libraries etc. I haven't been able to find an article to outline all of the above so I'd be very grateful to you if you could send me a link please.
The best expertise for you is probably The Library and Information Service of Criminal Sanctions Agency (Rikosseuraamuslaitos). The Criminal Sanctions Agency is a government authority, which enforces prison sentences and community sanctions under the direction of the Ministry of Justice.
