Library Fees & Fines

Charges on library accounts can now be paid online at our payment site. Sign in with your card number and phone number/password; then you'll be able to enter payment information.
All transactions are final. Please talk to library staff before making a payment if you have any questions.
Amounts of $5 or more can be paid online.
Please talk to us before paying more than $20 in late fees (not lost item fees) as these fees can be capped.
If you are interested in providing a replacement copy instead of paying for a lost item, library staff will provide specific information on requirements.
