To help get children’s and teens’ library cards back in good standing (and inspire more reading), the Algoma Public Library is hosting Read for Fines, a program in which a child or teen spends time reading at the library. Library staff will tally the time each person reads and waive up to $15 in overdue fines at the end of April. The program will run for the entire month.
The library is also hosting Food for Fines during National Library Week, April 7-13. Every nonperishable food item donated at the library will remove $1 from fines, up to $15.
