In response to your public record request, #41504-62144788.
The Nevada Department of Corrections has no list of banned books or periodicals. We have a policy in place that regulates the types of books that are allowed inside the institutions and facilities. I've attached that policy to this email. Look on page three O. Prohibited mail.
Ultimately it is the decision of a warden what they allow inside and what they don't when it comes to their facility. Since all facilities have different populations thus different needs, the warden has the responsibility to interpret this Administrative Regulation in which way it best serves their institution and their inmates.
