Marion Correctional Institution maintains video visiting kiosks in every general population housing unit. The hours of availability for video visits are as follows: 8:30 AM – 10:00AM and 12:00PM – 3:30PM. Visits are 30 minutes in duration; however, an additional 30 minutes can be requested if there is no one scheduled at the same kiosk immediately after the conclusion of the initial video visit. An approved visitor is defined as: a visitor that submitted an application for visitation, processing has been completed, and approval by institutional staff may request a video visit.
Approved visitors must create an account and register with JPay. When family members register to have a video visit, they are prompted by JPay through a series of steps to achieve their visit. Video visits must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance of the time that they are requesting.
Approved visitors may visit www.jpay.com for additional information

The reading rooms encourage family literacy by providing a pleasant and comfortable setting for both child and incarcerated parent. Each room is stocked with a wide variety of children’s books and has an inmate narrator who reads to the visiting children twice a day. The role of the inmate narrator is to read picture books to the children in much the same manner that children’s hour would be done at a public library. A variety of arts and craft supplies for the children are also available in most of the rooms. Many of the supplies and books are donated by employees and service organizations.
