The prisons which are considered as the correctional centers must
have the libraries so that those prisoners who are interested can
pursue their studies using books from there. Others, also may have
some entertainment material from these libraries. But it is seen
prison library system in India is not so well established, and so is the
case with Uttarakhand State. This paper discusses the state of art of prison library system and what the prisoners want to have in their libraries. The findings of this study may be useful for the prison authorities to develop prison libraries in the state.

Keywords: Prisons; Prison Libraries; Uttarakhand.
