The Plumas County Library has secured a grant to connect Plumas County Correctional Facility inmates to their children through a reading program. The county was one of six libraries in he state to get the Libraries Transforming Communities: Focus on Small and Rural Libraries $3,000 grant. The program called Families Read Together, helps inmates connect with their children by reading to them over recorded video. The program works by providing each family with five books and the video from the incarcerated parent. Inmates will also be able to add a handwritten card with their books. The first round of videos have been a success despite delays caused by the pandemic and Dixie Fire.
