The rules are:
1)Sign in at the Information desk
2)Read in the Teen area in full view of a librarian
3)Sign out at the Information desk and receive coupons
4)Redeem coupons at circulation desk the same day as reading session (coupons will be dated)Why is Norman Public library offering to waive fines for reading?
