'Pay it Forward' at the Yolo County Library

Post Date:09/19/2016 9:19 AM

Press Release

(Woodland, CA) – Over the years there have been many acts of kindness at the Yolo County Library, including customers who ask to donate towards the fines of others. The new program ‘Pay It Forward @ Your Library’ makes that possible at the Yolo County Library by allowing customers to help library card holders pay off their overdue fines.

Customers are welcome to donate to the Pay It Forward program and write a message on a star-shaped note that will be posted on a board behind the circulation desk. Individuals without available funds to pay their overdue fines, who may be prevented from borrowing items at the library as a result, can then redeem these Pay It Forward stars to lower their fines. Customers can contribute as little as the change in their pocket and as much as their heart desires to make a difference through this community helping-hand program.

“We are so fortunate to be in a community that looks out for each other,” said Yolo County Librarian Patty Wong. “Through the kindness of others we can help continue someone’s lifelong connection with literacy and the library.”
