Read Down Your Debt

Tuesday, September 06, 2011 - 05:48 AM

Parents, your child has only a few more days to read away his or her library fines. Since July 25, the New York Public Library’s Manhattan, Bronx and Staten Island branches have given children, teenagers and adults the chance to lower their fines by picking up a book. For every 15 minutes of reading that participants log, they will have one dollar deducted from their library bill. The program ends on Sept. 9. -- Jessica Campbell
