Jodie, my LO had a few more questions :).

- How often go to yard?
- Are typewriters allowed?
- Is AMC available to watch The Walking Dead?
- Email/video visiting available? (I know they have these in Menard, wondering if they have them anywhere else)
- What music devices are available (e.g., tapes, ipods, etc.)?

Thanks again! Appreciate it!

Does anyone know if the weekday visits at P'ville are all day like at Dixon or 4 hours like the weekends. Or are the weekends all day too? Thanks!

I visited my LO several times at P'ville last year and although the visiting hours were suppose to be 4-5hrs he told me to asked the guards in the visiting room to contact the warden during our visit to ask if i could stay longer since my drive was 5-6hrs. When I asked them if I could get an extended stay, they didn't call the warden they told me as long as it wasn't crowded i could stay until 5 (mind u our visit started at 8:30). I did this every time i visited. I just asked them if I could stay longer and they approved according to capacity. There never were more than 10 people in the visiting room at any time during the weekdays. Weekends might be different. But i would call and ask if they still do that before going. Hope that helps

 Typewriters are on the commissary list, and Walkmans. No email and video visits yet, and not sure about AMC.

Hi sorry for the late reply... I'm not 100% but I think yard is 3 times a week and gym once or twice a week.
Typewriters are on the commissary list - so I guess so
I've never heard him mention AMC (I'll ask when they get off LD)
No email/video visits yet..he had been told June sometime
Same again for mp3 players I believe..

😀
