It's 2016 and I don't know about you, but I don't usually carry much cash on me at any given time. With the convenience of debit and credit cards, it's easier to swipe than to fumble through your wallet or purse looking for the right bills or change to pay a vendor. It's been a long time coming, but your Abilene Public Library now accepts payments using your debit and credit cards.
Visit any branch library and use your debit/credit cards to pay your late fees, print charges, and more with ease. Your charges will need to be more than $1.00 to use this feature, but it offers yet another means to pay other than with cash or check. Please note, staff is unable to provide you with a written receipt for these transactions, but we will verify your payment has been accepted before you leave.
Additionally, you still have the option to pay your library fees online through the same means. By going to our online catalog and logging into your account, you can see your late fees and pay your charges online. To use this feature, your charges must be at least $3.00 and all transactions will come with a small convenience fee of $0.75. This feature is great for using to rid your account of late fees when the library is not open or you happen to be out of town.
Remember, if you have late fees, in excess of $3.00, you will not be able to checkout library materials (either digital or in our physical collection) until your charges are paid in full, or under the $3.00 threshold.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask library staff.
