Teen Read Down: You're Invited!

We are having a party at the Hamline Midway Library on Saturday, October 31, from 2-4 p.m., and you are invited!

For the first hour (2-3), we will be hanging out in the auditorium, enjoying snacks and reading whatever we like. This is your last chance to read down your fines -- 15 minutes of reading in the library = $1 off your library fines. We'll have some books & reading material for you to choose from, but feel free to bring a book if you like. (And if you don't have any fines, that's fine! ;) You can still join us for this part.)

For the second hour (3-4), we will have snacks and socializing and some fun activities for you to choose from:
~ Button-making
~ A special craft to help decorate the Teen Area in our library
~ An interior designer will be there to get your input on redesigning the Teen Area. What would make you want to come and hang out at the library?

Come for whatever part of the afternoon you like.

Invite your friends! Feel free to forward this email to them.

We hope to see you there!

Caryl & Jean (Teen Book Club co-leaders), Shelly (library manager), and Jen (interior designer)

Teen Read Down

Got fines? Read them away!

During October, anyone ages 12-18 can read down fines and billed items from their Saint Paul Public Library cards.

Here's how it works:
  • Read in the library.
  • Sign in at the start of your reading time, and sign out at the end.
  • Read print media only (books, comics, magazines, newspapers, textbooks, etc.). If participants can’t read on their own, time spent listening to audiobooks or being read to also counts.
  • For every 15 minutes spent reading, earn one dollar off in fines or fees.
