Read It Down

Date: April 18, 2013

Read It Down
(kids and teens, age 17 and under)

Got fines or fees? Read them away!

Ramsey County Library invites you to come in on the first Saturday of every month to participate. Earn $1 for every 15 minutes you spend reading (or being read to) in the library. The coupon can be applied toward any current fines.

Read It Down is available during all open hours at all Ramsey County libraries on the first Saturday of every month.
 

To participate:

  • Sign in at the beginning of your reading time and sign out at the end.
  • Read for 15 minute increments.
  • Read in the library.
  • Read print media only. Time spent being read to also counts.
  • Earn $1 for every 15 minutes of reading (no limits to number of coupons earned).

The fine print:

  • There is no cash value for the coupons.
  • Leftover amounts cannot be applied to future charges.
  • Coupons are non-transferable. (You can't give them away.)
  • Participants need to bring their coupons to the circulation desk the day they read.
  • Coupons may be applied to any non-rental fines on children and teen cards.
  • They may also be applied to any non-rental fines on children or teen materials on the card of an accompanying adult.
