No, you may not bring any books or other reading materials with you. The only books that are allowed into the facility must come directly from the publisher and be addressed to the inmate. Inmates serving extended sentences must make arrangements for these to be picked up at the time of release; however, staff may require excess materials be picked up prior to release. Inmates may donate these materials to the SMC Jail library.

There are two ways to bond a person out of jail:
1. If you have cash in the amount of the bond, you can bring it to the Sheriff's Office and post the bond yourself. You will be required to provide picture identification. A deputy will assist you in filling out the bond forms. Your money will not be returned until after the person bonded appears in court, and the judge releases the bond. When the bond is released, a check will be mailed to you from the court.
2. You can contact a bondsman licensed in Colorado and they can post the bond. A bondsman will charge a percentage of the bond (generally 15%) and require some type of collateral. You must contact the bondsman directly for their rates and requirements.
