Paying Fees

Effective immediately, no overdue fees will be added to accounts and existing overdue fees have been cleared. As we implement these changes, you will notice that some services are unavailable if an account has items currently overdue. Accounts with overdue items will be ineligible for placing holds, renewing items, or checking out additional materials. Please see our Press Release or Overdue Fees FAQ for additional information.
If you have questions or need assistance with your account, please contact the library at 972-466-4800.
