Fine Forgiveness Program For Youth Age 0-16

Are overdue fines keeping youth you know away from the Ripon Public Library? They’re welcome back to clear up those fines with our fine forgiveness initiative!

* During the pandemic, patrons are no longer required to read in the library to earn fine forgiveness. Requests may be made in person, by phone, or online. Fine forgiveness is also temporarily expanded to cover fines for lost and damaged items. *

Library users, 0-16 years old, are invited to read away their fines, with every hour spent reading at the library equal to $5.00 in fine forgiveness. A young child who is not yet reading can participate with an adult reader’s assistance. This initiative is made possible by an anonymous donor. Call or visit the library for details.
