READ AWAY YOUR FINES IN SEPTEMBER
Our Read Away Fines program is for ANYONE and ANY AGE! All you need is your own Derby Public Library card in order to participate. The Library will waive a penny of fines for a minute of reading, and you can read up to $10.00 of your Derby Public Library fines away during September. You can read whatever you want 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 years old or younger, a parent or guardian needs to initial the time you read and sign the 2018 Read Away Fines form in order for you to get credit. Our “Read Away Fines” Program starts on September 1 and ends on September 30, 2018.
NOTE: You cannot read away the cost of a lost or damaged item, read ahead for fines not yet accrued, read away fines from another library, or read away fines from someone else's card.
To get started, simply ask for a “Read Away Fines” form at the Children’s or Circulation Desks, or download and print the Read Away Fines form from our website www.derbypubliclibrary.org. Bring your Read Away Fines form to the Circulation Desk when you come to the Library to get credit and waive your fines.
Derby Public Library’s “Read Away Your Fines” program is modeled after Bozeman Public Library, Bozeman, MT’s “Read Away Your Fines” program
