Read Off Your Fines with the Yolo County Library

Read Off Your Fines with the Yolo County Library

(Woodland, CA) – Join the Yolo County Library for the Read Off Your Fines campaign in April which targets library card holders, ages 18 and under, who owe overdue fines on their library card. 

All eight branches of the Yolo County Library will participate in this campaign where participants will be able to deduct $1.00 for every 15 minutes spent reading a book of their choice in the library.  The branches in Yolo and Knights Landing will run the campaign from April 1 to April 16, while the other six branches will run from April 10 to April 16.

The Read Off Your Fines campaign encourages youth who have been blocked from checking out library materials to once again take advantage of the many resources and materials available at the library.  This program encourages youth to take responsibility for their fines by reading their favorite books, or trying out new ones, in exchange for forgiving overdue fines.

(Woodland, CA) – The Yolo County Library is offering community members an opportunity to earn an accredited high school diploma and credentialed career certificate through Career Online High School (COHS), a program brought to public libraries by Gale, a for profit company a part of Cengage Learning.

COHS is a pilot project, recently signed by Governor Brown, with a $1 million budget aimed at helping Californians earn a high school diploma online.  The California State Library is assisting with the program’s implementation and working to create partnerships and funding opportunities at the local and state levels.  The Yolo County Office of Education has agreed to generously give $10,000 of the $17,000 in matching funds required by the State Library.  The Yolo County Library is continuing to work with the Yolo County Office of Education and Yolo County school districts to raise the remaining funds.
