Great Summer Read Down

Thanks to all who participated in the Great Summer Read Down!


Come back to this page for a summary of how it went!

What was the Great Summer Read Down?

Youth could reduce or “read down” fees on their library cards by reading (or being read to) in the library. They received $2 off for every 20 minutes starting May 25th through August 31, 2017. Check back later for a summary of how it went.

Why did the library do this?


Fines and fees happen. It can be frustrating to have your card blocked (over $10 in fees) when you want to check out library items.  We wanted to give youth ages 0-18 the opportunity to reduce their fees and encourage reading habits.
