Kids: Read Down Your Fines!

Ages 3 to 18 

book-bucksDo you have fines from overdue books?!  No problem!  Read here in the library, earn “Book Bucks” and then apply them to your library fines.  It’s easy!  Just sign in with any librarian, so your reading can be timed.  For every 15 minutes you read, you will receive one dollar in “Book Bucks”.  You can read magazines, books, newpapers or textbooks, just as long as you sign in first.  You can even read to a sibling!  Remember that Book Bucks can only be used for overdue charges, and not to pay for a lost book or DVD.
