How to Pay a Fine 
If you are a Main Library or Cybrary customer, you may pay your library fines through the Fines/Fees screen in your online account. A library card number and password are required to login to our account. 

About Online Payments:

  • We use PayPal's PayFlow Pro secure gateway service to process our online payments. We do not store any credit card information in your patron account.

  • If your debit card also functions as a credit card, you may use it to make an online payment.

  • Mobile catalog users must use the full catalog, rather than the mobile catalog, to pay fines online.

We only accept credit card payments online, not at any of our library locations. If you are visiting the library in person to pay a fine, you must use cash or a check to make a payment.
