     It is now called the Hotel 7 Inn and it's right across the street from Dairy Queen.

My l/o is in IL River. I agree though, make sure you call first! I've brought little slow cooker cookbooks. I removed the plastic covered twisted metal "binding" piece & tied a small string through the top & bottom holes so it would stay together. He loved it! Gives them ideas for commissary items to buy to prepare a "feast" in their hot pot. My son has become quite the "chef" in there. I put his number on everything!!!

Hi 4ever,
                It's been a long time since I visited Shawnee, my fiance is now in Graham and has been for over 5 years but I will try and help as much as I can. We actually lived 6 hours away from Shawnee so I would get a drive down from a family member and stay in the Motel right across from the Dairy Queen. It was clean and reasonably priced and just down the street from the prison.
                 I would stay the weekend and visit every day. The visits were 4 hours long. The c/o's were very friendly and helpful. Sometimes if the room was empty they'd let you have a little bit more time.
                                      Anyway, I hope this helps a little bit. I hope you get to see your l/o soon !

                                                                            wc71-1 Sizz

Definitely check with your facility. Some of them allow hardcover books while others do not.

Sending by "media mail". Its much cheaper and may take a day or two longer? Didnt ever have a problem. Ive sent math workbooks, magazines & soft cover books.. I brought hard cover books. Make sure you put his number on each book.
