READ DOWN YOUR FINES
Kids 16 and younger can “pay” their overdue fines by reading in the library. Just tell a librarian when you start and finish reading, and we will waive $1 for every 30 minutes of reading.

READING BUDDIES
The library matches volunteers, age 13-adult, with younger children to read together for one hour each week at the library. Call the Weaver Library (434-2453) for more information.
