  1. I know I I list a book. So my Library card is not in good standing. I would like to pay restitution & fix it, if you could tell me how & how much.

    1. Thanks for sending us this message. There are two ways to pay fees: 1) Call one of our five locations to have a staff person look into your account and discuss payment. You can find locations and phone numbers on our website here: and 2) You can go to and click on “My Account” and “Log In”. Use your library card number and PIN (last four digits of your phone number) to log into your account. You can find the fee amount in the “Fines and Fees” section and pay online.
