Product Description

Research shows that overdue fines are a barrier to library services. I hate them, and I'm betting you do, too. If you're looking for an alternative to charging mandatory overdue fines, you'll love these FREE bookmarks that encourage students to read off their fines.

About the bookmarks

  • 1 minute of reading = 1 cent of the fine erased
  • six bookmarks per page (all are exactly the same)
  • print front-to-back
  • side 1: grid where students tally their reading minutes
  • side 2: student information and directions
  • the bookmarks are NOT editable

How it works:

Students can read-off their overdue fines by filling out this bookmark reading log. 1 minute of reading = 1 cent of the fine erased. For example, a 50 cent fine could be erased in exchange for 50 minutes of reading.

The student's parent/guardian or teacher must sign the bookmark to help curtail "shortcuts."

More about my store:

I regularly add new products for school librarians and English teachers, particularly for middle school, to my store. All my new products are half-off for the first 48 hours.

Take advantage of the "First 48 Half-Off" by following my store at the top of this page. Look for the green "Follow" link under my store name. Following my store will give you notifications of when new products are posted.
