NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – If you have any good softcover books that need a second home, the Newport News Sheriff’s Office is collecting them for the Newport News City Jail’s inmate library.

According to NNSO, softcover books (no hardbacks accepted) are always in demand because they wear out quickly.

The books will be made available to inmates after department personnel look through the donations.

To donate, drop off paperback books in the lobby of the Newport News City Jail, which is located at 224 26th Street in downtown Newport News. NNSO accepts book donations year round each weekday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
