Books
Inmates must order books through GEO corp, only books offered by GEO are allowed. They do this themselves at the facility, no sending books through Amazon or Barnesandnoble...The inmate pays for the books with money in their trust account.

Money
The facility does not use Jpay. A cashiers check or money order must be sent to the facility with the inmates name and CDC # on the check. They take the standard percentage for restitution (about 50%) and the remainder is available to the inmate.

Canteen
Inmates can go to canteen once every two weeks. GSMCCF sells items that are provided by access securepak (quarterly package company, website: http://www.californiaqp.com (http://www.californiaqp.com/) ). They can buy soft drinks, cosmetics, basic food etc. From what i hear, prices are high.

General Conditions
The facility is small, so the dorms hold around 80 level 1 and 2 inmates. The yard is small. there are 3 televisions in the dayroom with lots of seating, one TV with sports all the time, and the other two with various movies and sitcoms. The staff is strict and will write inmates up for minor violations, something i have heard is common with CCF's and MCCF's. They have a computer lab which inmates can attend as their "job" 8 hours a day. They have a large library. Inmates can take pictures i believe 7 days a week for $3.00 at the library to send home. The food is good, 3 hot meals a day, although the portions are smaller.
