If you owe an overdue fine, you may continue to pay it off with cash or volunteer to work off the amounts. Or try our new methods: 1. “Read Down Your Fine” is intended for youths 17 & under. For every 1/2 hour they read (or are read to) in the library, they will get the equivalent of $1 off the amount they owe for overdue fines.  2. “Can Food” supports the GGCSA food pantry. For every can or non-perishable item brought in, we will reduce the overdue fine by $1.00. All methods are only valid for Galway fines and overdues. Replacement costs for lost items are not eligible for fine reduction.
