Every year around Christmas break the library staff allows students to come and sing away their fines. This is a tradition that has been going on for over 10 years and has helped everybody get in the Christmas spirit, as well as help out those who haven’t been able to pay off their fines.

Everybody is included, and many different groups have their own rendition of how they decide to perform for the library staff. Most of the groups will sing a simple Christmas song, but they will also have the groups that play instruments and the ones who will even just clap the rhythm of different songs if they don’t want to sing in front of a group.

Last year, $517 fines were forgiven, and 372 students sang. This year $362 in fines were forgiven and there were 449 students who sang and participated.
