    Sent a package of 100 paperback books (Nicky Cruz’s personal testimony (Co-Founder of Teen Challenge) book called “Run Baby Run”) to Chaplin at Faribault prison recently…. Apparently there is a required procedure to getting such material into the hands of a Chaplin to freely distribute to inmates if and when they visited the Chaplin (please email link to this policy if possible), but I was unaware of this and have found no rules online so far governing topping cold delivery of such materials. Can you advise ? The Warden is trying to keep them from being recycled (total cost to me $1200+) but who knows what will happen….I do not want them recycled (came directly from the publisher) and I DO want them back, and would now consider sending them directly via public list of offenders under separate cover/address/offender number if THAT is allowed….. Any advice on how to redeem my situation ??
