PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Some good news for kids who love reading. 

As part of the Summer Reading Program at the Multnomah County Library, cardholders younger than 18 can check out books and no longer worry about late fines, effective June 15. 

The library will forgive existing youth late fines, but replacement fees will remain in place for items that aren't returned. 

The program starts a week from Friday and this year's theme is wellness, sports and fitness.

More than 85,000 students have already signed up for the program through schools. Anyone who hasn’t signed up through school can do so at any neighborhood library starting June 17.
