Victoria College book drive donates books to Victoria County Jail

A total of 410 paperback books were recently donated to the Victoria County Jail library as part of Victoria College’s book drive for Project New Start, a program at the jail where inmates can continue their education. Carol Walters, VC Bookstore assistant manager, is pictured bringing the books to the jail. Accepting the books at right is Darlene Mayberry, Victoria County Sheriff’s Office education coordinator. Mayberry said the donated books are very popular with jail inmates and their reading tastes run the gamut from westerns to science fiction novels.
