Library System Offers Read-Down Fines Program for Adults during April

The Jackson-George Regional Library System is offering a special program for adults who may owe library fines for overdue books or library materials. Beginning April 1st, adults may read-down fines by reading to themselves or to another person instead of paying the fine owed. Previously, only children to age 17 could participate in the ongoing program. Adults will get $1 taken off of their fines for every 10 minutes that they read. Any print media will be accepted, including children’s books, magazines, or even newspapers. Library director Lori Smith said, “The purpose of this program originally was to empower older children to do something about fines owed to the library. We will be offering it to adults during the month of April in celebration of National Library Week.” Details for the program are: Adult patrons who owe fines may read down fines during April only. Fines for lost or damaged books are not included in this program. There is no sign up sheet or registration and is based on the honor system. Reading down fines must take place at the library and is available up until thirty minutes prior to closing time.
