Paying Library Fines and Fees

In person:
Library patrons can pay for their fines, fees and manual charges in person with cash, check and credit cards at either location.

Using Self-Check:
All self-check machines will accept credit card payments for balances.  The minimum fine amount that can be paid is $1.01.  Designated self-check machines will accept cash payments for any amount owed.
