Barnes & Noble

*** Remember, if you order CD's from Barnes and Noble, they will not count as a quarterly package, but there is a limit of 8 CDs an inmate is allowed to have.

***Magazines & Paperback Books can also be ordered, however they must come directly from the vendor. I often go to Barnes and Noble in my area and pick out magazines or books. They ship them for me to the prison at a reasonable cost.

***You cannot send MAGAZINES to inmates in RECEPTION.


Quarterly Packages:

The California Inmate Quarterly Package system allows you to send much-desired items to your incarcerated loved one. Each institution sets it’s own rules as to what items are allowed and prohibited and items vary by privilege groups. As a result, vendors therefore provide services to a limited amount of Facilities, Camps, CCF’s or the LA County Jail System. All Quarterly Packages are limited to a maximum weight of 30 Lbs. Nor can they exceed dimensions of 24” x 24” x 24”. All vendors list those institutions for which they provide goods and services and what privilege groups.

Special Packages:

Special Packages allow for the purchase of Electronics, Accessories, Musical Instruments, Under Garments and Clothing, Correspondence Courses, Legal Material and Faith Based Items. That would otherwise crowd a quarterly package beyond its allowed weight or dimensions. There is no limit to the amount of special packages allowed in a calendar year. *** Please call the R&R department (call (415)-454-1460 and press "0" for the operator. He/She will transfer you) at San Quentin before sending a special package. Make sure what you plan on sending is allowed for this prison.***
