Got library fines? Read them down any time

There’s a nifty little program that is ongoing at all the Louisville Free Public Library locations. If overdue fines are keeping your kids from using the library, "Read It Down" is just what you need. The program allows children and teens to reduce their library fines by simply reading.

A particular dollar amount is assigned according to how much time is spent reading. Reading must be done at the library. Kids and teens can read or listen to any books or magazines of their choice.

To participate, just check in with a library staff member and let him/her know that your child would like to complete the Read It Down program. They will get you started and keep track of your child’s time. When your child is done reading, let the staff member know. Reading time earned is tracked immediately and those fines will be removed that day.

Owe less in fines by reading more! It’s that simple. Contact 574-1620 with any questions.
