Read Off Your Fines with the Yolo County Library
(Woodland, CA) – Beginning May 26, join the Yolo County Library for the Read Off Your Fines campaign. The campaign targets children and young adult library card holders, ages 17 and under, who owe overdue fines on their library card. All eight branches of the Yolo County Library will participate in this campaign.
This year the Read Off Your Fines campaign will be held from May 26 to August 19, 2017, in conjunction with the Summer Reading Program. Participants will be able to deduct $1.00 from their fines for every 15 minutes spent reading a book of their choice in the library and also use those minutes toward earning incentives in the Summer Reading Program.
The Read Off Your Fines campaign encourages youth who have been blocked from checking out library materials to once again take advantage of the many resources and materials available at the library. This program encourages youth to take responsibility for their fines by reading their favorite books, or trying out new ones, in exchange for forgiving overdue fines.
“The Read Off Your Fines program is an opportunity to encourage young people to return to the library,” said Library Administrator Chris Crist. “We hope youth of all ages take advantage of this campaign to lower their overdue fines.”
