Boy Donates Books to Inmates released Montgomery County TN Sheriffs Office

A Tennessee boy used his allowance to give local jail inmates a chance at a better life by creating a library.

Nine-year-old Tyler Fugett told his mom he wanted to give people who were behind bars at the Montgomery County Jail something to take their minds off their surroundings.

Tyler figured if inmates read, they don’t have time to think about doing bad things.

He showed up without warning at the sheriff’s office, armed with more than 100 books he had purchased on sale at local bookstores.

Tyler isn’t finished — he’s collected more books and is now gathering hygiene items to donate to the jail to help inmates start a new chapter in their lives.
