Criminal Justice Students Collect Books for Women's Prison

Students from Penn State Altoona's criminal justice classes delivered 3,558 books this past semester to the Muncy Prison. Students set up collection boxes around campus near the end of last semester for faculty, staff, and fellow students to donate books for use in the women's state prison library. "The book holdings at Muncy prior to Penn State Altoona's donation were approximately 10,000, so our donation increased their holdings by approximately 1/3, to the delight and amazement of the Muncy staff," said Sharon RedHawk Love, assistant professor of criminal justice and sociology.
