Update!

Due to the current health crisis, we are not taking payment for Library fees in person. Pay online by credit card using Oviatt Fees Storefront.

Options to pay fees for:

  • Library Equipment Replacement/Repair
  • Library Late Fees
  • Library Book Replacement.

If you have a hold on your account, please note that it will take up to 24 hours for the hold to be removed.
