Read Down Fines

Read Down Your Fines - kids and teens can erase library fines

Wipe your slate clean!

Children and teens can read down their fines at the Enoch Pratt Free Library.

How it works:

  • Visit your local branch and check in with the librarian.

  • Read a book, magazine, newspaper, textbook, or e-reader at the library and earn Pratt Bucks.

  • Children 12 and under earn one Pratt Buck for every 15 minutes of supervised reading time, and teens ages 13 to 17 earn one Pratt Buck for every 30 minutes.

  • One Pratt Buck is equivalent to one dollar, and can be turned in at the Circulation Desk to pay down late fines and other library fees.

Children and teens can earn unlimited Pratt Bucks during Read Down Fines events at every location.

Check with your local Pratt Library branch for details on how to participate.
