LOVE what the NY Public Library is doing to encourage young readers

I LOVE what librarians are doing at the New York Public Library–waiving the fines of children barred from borrowing new items by having them read! For every 15 minutes of reading these children do, they get $1 taken off their fine. What a brilliant thing to do–encouraging literacy and reading!

  1. Deb Marshall Says:

    kinda love this idea, too! it’s a great way to foster relationships with kids, I think…show them we really, really want them to keep coming and “things” can _always_ be worked out!

  2. Cheryl Rainfield Says:

    I think so, too, Deb! And what a great way to look at it!

  3. Jessica Says:

    That is so COOL! I wish they did that at “my” library!

  4. Cheryl Rainfield Says:

    I know what you mean, Jessica! I wish it, too. 🙂
