In Person

Fines and bills may be paid in person during Library hours at the Patron Services desk. We accept cash, check or credit card. There must be a minimum of $3 in fines in order to pay by credit card in person.


Log in to your library account with your library card barcode and PIN. Your PIN should be the last 4 digits of your phone number. It can be reset online or by contacting Patron Services.

Click on the Fines Tab and select the fines you want to pay. Fines must be a minimum of $1.00 to pay online.

All major credit cards are accepted.

  • See the Loan Period and Limits for information on charged fines.
  • If you have any questions about paying a fine online, any bills you have on your account or any material that you believe you may have already returned, please contact the Patron Services desk and we will be happy to help you with your problem or question.
  • If you have forgotten or lost your PIN, you may reset it online or by contacting the Patron Services desk.
  • We offer three ways that you can receive your hold and overdue notices: email, text or automated phone call. Text is the only option that you are able to opt in or out of online. If you need to change your notice preference, contact the Patron Services desk.
