Children and Teens: Read Away Your Fines

Children and teens (K-12) using their own cards may read away their overdue fines (not including lost material replacement fees) in the library (when we are open), at the rate of $1 per 15 minutes of reading (consequently, $4 per hour). Just sign up at the front desk.
