PULASKI COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) - A former inmate of the Pulaski County Jail gave back to the institution.
Penny Green showed up at the jail Thursday with hundreds of books to donate.
"I know how important the books are to the people house here," she explained. "They can help us grow spiritually, they can help us grow educationally, and they can also give us an escape."
Green said books will also go to the Lonoke and White County Jails. She collected them from churches, local theaters and Books-a-Million.
