School Supplies for Fines

The week of August 1-7, Skokie Public Library will be accepting school supplies to offset overdue fines on your account. Donated supplies will be given to local Skokie schools.

Bring in one new packaged item from the school-approved list below and we will waive $1.00 in overdue fines up to $10.00 per library card.
For example, if you owe $5.40 in fines, bring in at least 6 items and we will waive the $5.40.

You don’t have fines? We will gladly accept donations
