Libraries across Los Angeles are looking to grab the attention of children and kids back into books. They are doing their bit to encourage more and more kids to stay away from Smartphones and the internet and to engage in reading.
Many of the Los Angeles libraries have signed up with local schools to enroll every student in their library. They also will drop the late fees that they collect from students under the age of 21. Any youngster who has overdue and late fees can get his or her fees waived off by reading more books.
Leilany Medina was the first kid to avail these new facilities on offer from Los Angeles libraries. She decided to read off the $4 dues she had at the East Los Angeles Library. She said that one can read until they feel like reading. The librarian will let you know how much of dues are waived off once you stop reading.
The kids get to waive off up to $5 an hour. This program kick-started in June. It has seen good results so far. By virtue of the ‘read away’ policy, the libraries in LA were able to restart the 3,500 blocked accounts.
