In celebration of National Teen Read Week, the Lafayette County & Oxford Public Library will give anyone ages 13-18 the chance to “read away” their fines. Once the teens meet the criteria for the program, they simply have to read for two hours in the library.

The effort is designed to promote reading and encourage these young scofflaws to not be afraid to take advantage of the library’s many services.

“We hope this will help kids clear their records and check out materials again,” said Dorothy Fitts, head librarian for the local library.
