Kern County Library offers fine forgiveness program
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) —
They will take care of all your fees, so you come back to the library.
Kids, teens and adults have the opportunity to get a clean slate by either reading, donating or returning overdue books.
The program runs June 25-30 and again July 30 to Aug. 4.
The offer does not apply to accounts already in collections.
Library staff created a music video, urging people to come back.
To qualify, kids and teens need to fill out a reading log and turn it in during the week the program is running.
Adults need to donate one library item, an animal care item, or canned food.
