Those minutes will count towards Read Off Your Fines, as well! Even better? The time spent reading can ALSO count for the Summer Reading Program! How sweet is that?! Just sign in, start reading, and sign out when you’re finished! Easy peasy! Read Off Your Fines is only applicable for overdue items and will not reduce charges for lost or damaged materials.
