New Milford Public Library will celebrate Teen Read Week Oct. 13-19 with two programs for students in grades 6-12.

Upon request, overdue fines will be forgiven during Teen Read Week.

This includes fines for books, audios and magazines, but does not include DVD fines, or lost or damaged items.

Participants are invited to choose their favorite emoticon and take a picture of themselves or a friend mimicking the emoticon for a contest.

Entries may be emailed to or dropped off at the Main Street library.

The winner by popular vote will receive a Tasty Wave gift card.
