Support Local Journalism


Beginning May 20, the Yolo County Library will hold its annual Read Off Your Fines campaign for children and young adult library card holders, ages 17 and under, who owe overdue fines on their library accounts. All eight branches of the Yolo County Library will participate in this campaign.

This year, the Read Off Your Fines campaign will be held from May 20 to Aug. 18, in conjunction with the Summer Reading Program. Participants will be able to deduct $1 from their fines for every 15 minutes spent reading a book of their choice in the library and also use those minutes toward earning incentives in the Summer Reading Program.

“The Read Off Your Fines initiative is a great opportunity for young people to sustain and build on their school year learning with the added advantage of reducing any fines accrued on their accounts,” said Yolo County Librarian Mark Fink.  “We hope youth of all ages take advantage of this campaign.”
