Default Info about FCI Forrest City (Low), new to this!

My brother is currently incarcerated at the Federal Prison (Low) in Forrest City, Ak. He's looking at a release date in 2014-2015. I send him letters when I can, but he is interested in getting magazines and books to have something to do. I'm new to this, and have no idea exactly what I can send and how.

If anyone has more experience with this particular prison, and the rules, please let me know!

Also, there are a lot of inmate magazine websites, but not all of them look very legit, I'd love some links to a few websites that you know are good!

Thanks,

I was just looking for the same information and found in another thread that you can order the magazines through Amazon. Just send them to the same address that you send the letters to.

Hope that helps.

Make sure any address you give has P. O. Box 9000 for low facility in Forrest City. Amazon uses Fed Ex a lot and they have to know it's a post office box. Just Box 9000 won't get it there.

The bop only accepts mail/magazines for inmates that are delivered by the US Post Office, so make sure they ship that way.
