Teen Read Week October 9-15 2016

Teen Read Week encourages teens all across the country to

Read for the Fun of It!

In celebration of Teen Read Week, Contra Costa County Library invites teens to “Read Your Fines Away”.  Teens in grades 6-12 have the opportunity to clear late charges from their library card accounts during the week of October 9-15 2016.  Contra Costa County Library wants every teen to use their library. “Read Your Fines Away” is an easy, no-cost program for teens to return books, CD’s, movies and anything else they may have checked out. As an added feature, teens can have overdue fines removed from their library account by reading in the library for one hour. After reading for an hour, teens will receive a certificate to have fines and late charges removed from their account. While the certificate will not cover lost items, teens are encouraged to return all overdue items and have their fines removed - no questions asked.

Contact your local Contra Costa County Library for more details.
