Take part in the "Great Fines Read Off" Program

Calling all children and teens—
Do you have fines on your library card that you'd like to remove? 

If so, come to Olney Library (or any MCPL library branch) to read them off!

Reading an e-book in the Teen Section

For each half hour that you read, earn $1 “Library Buck” to pay down your fine. You can read any book, magazine, or e-book.

Before you start, stop by the Information Desk to sign in and log your start time. After you’ve finished reading, come to the Info Desk to sign out and pick up your earned “bucks.” Then bring them to the Checkout Desk to pay down your fine. It’s that easy!

Young children can earn “Library Bucks” if they read to a parent or caregiver, or if a parent or caregiver reads to them.

If a teen or child reads to another young person, both earn “Library Bucks” for their time!

Please note:
  • The program is for children or teens 17 years old or younger
  •  All reading must be done in the library
  •  Only fines for overdue books and unclaimed hold fees may be read down
  •  Children or teens must have fines at the time of participation-- bucks cannot be banked for future use. 

Stop by the Info Desk if you have any questions. 

While the "Great Fines Read Off Program" runs year round, you can stay cool this summer by reading at Olney Library… see you soon!  

Enjoying a summer read at the library
