Lines for Fines: April 17-30

Want to get rid of those late charges that somehow (accidentally, of course) built up on your card? Participate in Lines for Fines to clear them up! From April 17 to 30, bring in one or more original poems to the Branch or Main libraries and we will clear all your fines! All ages are welcome to participate. Your poems will be placed on display in the library for other patrons to peruse as part of our National Poetry Month celebration. Because of this, please make sure poems are G or PG rated!

Please note that Lines for Fines does not cover lost or billed items. For inspiration and ideas, check out a poetry or writing book, or peruse some online resources:
