In celebration of National Library Week, CCLD will be offering the opportunity for patrons under the age of 15 to read down their fines.
This means for every 15 minutes they spend reading in their local library (Big Flats, Horseheads, West Elmira, Steele, or Van Etten), they can deduct $0.50 from the total of their fines. This will apply only to their own library card; they may not read down fines for family members or friends.
This is a great chance for kids who have chalked up fines of any amount to lower or eliminate fines preventing them from borrowing materials.
The dates will be April 11 – 16.
Mark down the dates, and come in to the library and read down those fines!
