The library held its initial Read Down Your Fines Week in June. The idea was for minor card hold- ers age 16 and younger to pay off any fines by reading at the library. For each 15 minutes of reading, $1 was waived from fines on their account for late return of materi- als. In the case of very young chil- dren with fines on their cards, par- ents could read down the child's fines by reading to them in the library. A total of 173 cardholders took part. Because of a generous response to the Read Down Your Fines fun- draising appeal and the positive responses from patrons, a second Read Down Your Fines week has been scheduled as part of Teen Read Week Oct. 14-19. "Our goal remains the same, to make kids feel welcome at their library and get them reading," said Beth Ringsmuth Stolpman, library patron services special- ist. The opportunity to read down fines will be offered at all 32 GRRL locations. Young people who want to take part should speak with library staff as local procedures mayvary. "We received a terrific response to our Read Down Your Fines fun- draiser. It's clear that the goal of getting young people back to the library and reading resonated with our supporters. We're grate- ful, because their donations made it possible to offer Read Down again," said Julie Henne, associate director of public relations. GRRL provides library ser- vices at 32 public libraries in Benton, Morrison, Sherburne, Stearns, Todd and Wright Coun- ties. It provides Central Minnesota residents with nearly one million books, CDs and DVDs, 250 pub- lic computers, programming and information services. Schiefelbein Angus Farm ranked first First in Angus regi;trations for Minnesota during 2013 Schiefelbein Angus Farm, Kimball, ranked as largest in reg- istering the most Angus beef cattle in Minnesota, having recorded 557 head of Angus with the American Angus Association® during fiscal year 2013, which ended Sept. 30, according to Bryce Schumann, Association chief executive officer. Angus breeders across the nation in 2013 registered 388,822 head of Angus cattle. "Our year-end statistics continue to demonstrate strong demand for Angus genetics and solidify our long-held position as a leader in the beef cattle indus- try," Schumann says. "These results underscore our members' commit- ment to providing genetic solutions to the beef cattle industry." Nelson Family Farm.
