|Fines Half Off At Your Local Library!|
Internet stores report their busiest sales day is the Monday after Thanksgiving, known as Cyber Monday. It is the online version of Black Friday, that Friday after Thanksgiving when we expect big savings on gift items. This year Central Mississippi Regional Library System libraries are participating in Cyber Monday in a very low tech manner. Visit any of the 20 CMRLS library branches in Rankin, Scott, Simpson, or Smith Counties on Monday, December 1, and all fines are 50% off. Yes, half off!
"We haven't offered a fine reduction lately," said Mara Polk, director of CMRLS. "School papers and projects will soon be due; we want to especially help these students clear up their fines and to have a successful school year. The offer to cut fines by 50% is open to all ages, for all fines; however this does not apply to collection fees."
Come in to any CMRLS library during regular hours on Monday, December 1, to take advantage of half off fines. Your local library accepts cash or check. However, it will be possible to pay your fines by credit or debit card. You must visit your library to have staff apply the 50% savings to your account and then use a library computer or your personal device to finish the transaction.
To find business hours for any CMRLS library on Monday, December 1, visit http://www.cmrls.lib.ms.us/BRANCHES.htm or call your local library.
Happy holidays and good savings to you!
