Read Away Your Fines!

Our Read Away Fines program is for ANYONE and ANY AGE! You need to have your own library card in order to participate.

We’ll waive a penny of fines for a minute of reading, and you can read up to $10.00 of your fines away in 2019. 

You can read whatever you wantRead Away Fines Image and any kind of reading counts. Doing homework? Studying for a test? Reading for your job? Reading comic books? Mom or Dad reading to you? This reading time all counts. Young adults may also read to or with younger children, and both of you can get credit for the time.

If you are 11 or younger, a parent or guardian needs to initial the time you read and sign this form in order for you to get credit.

NOTE: You cannot read away the cost of a lost or damaged item, read away fines if your account has been sent to collections, read ahead for fines not yet accrued, or read away fines from someone else's card.

To get started, simply ask for a Read Away Fines form at the Children’s, Circulation, or Information Desks, or download and print the Read Away Fines form below.

Bring your Read Away Fines form to the Circulation Desk when you come to the Library to get credit and waive your fines.
