Pay It Forward@Your Library

Library users can help library card holders pay off their overdue fines. You are welcome to donate to the Pay It Forward program and write a message on a star-shaped note that will be posted on a board behind the circulation desk. Individuals without available funds to pay their overdue fines, who may be prevented from borrowing at the library as a result, can then redeem these Pay it Forward Stars to lower their fines. You can contribute as little as the change in your pocket or as much as you like to make a difference through this community helping-hand program.
