Late Fees

Payment for late fees (overdue fines) or other charges are accepted at the Checkout desk.  We accept cash, check, or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express).

Bills assessed to your account can also be paid at our self-check machine with a credit card. Scan your library card and follow the instructions on the screen.

Late fees can only be paid once materials have been returned or renewed.  Returned materials may take up to 3 days to reflect on your account.  All items are checked in according to the date they were placed in the drops.  

If your user account status is “Blocked” but you have no fines showing, you may have overdue materials. Please call 847-566-8702 to renew with library staff or return your materials. Once materials are returned or renewed by library staff the bill will appear so you can pay it.
