#var:page_name# cover

Youth under 15 years old are invited to a quiet reading time at the library - bring a pillow and get comfortable! D.E.A.R. stands for "Drop Everything and Read," a national month-long celebration in April of reading designed to remind folks of all ages to make reading a priority activity in their lives. Because, what's more fun(damental) than reading, really?
In addition to spending time enjoying books, this program offers the opportunity to "Read Off Your Fines" for youth with fines on their library card. Be sure to sign in, then every 15 minutes you spend reading at this special event $1.25 will be waived from your eligible fines and fees. Children too young to read on their own can still participate by having an adult read aloud to them.
Snacks and drinks will be provided for readers. For questions or more information contact Mary J. Mollner at 402.444.4800.
