Pay Fines Online
Chester County Library System now offers the service of paying your fines and fees online.
How can I pay my library fines and fees online?
The Pay Online button can be found by going to the Catalog and clicking on the "View Your Record" link. Once you enter your name and library card number, you have access to several options, including "Pay Online."
What is the Chester County Library Systems Security/Privacy/Refund policy?
What forms of payment are accepted for online payments?
The Library accepts MasterCard and Visa cards.
Is a service fee charged when paying fines online?
No. The Chester County Library does not add an additional service charge when paying fees online.
Is there a minimum fine amount that can be paid online?
No, you may pay any fine amount that you owe, but you will only be able to pay your fines online if your fine amount is greater than $1.00. Once in your record, when you click Pay Online, all fines are pre-selected. If you do not wish to pay all of the fines, you can "uncheck" the fines you do not wish to pay at this time and hit recalculate to pay only the checked, selected fines. Each selected fine must be paid in full - you cannot pay a partial amount on a selected fine.
Why do the fines I just paid still appear on "My Library Record" screen?
You must "refresh" that screen. When you do, it will accurately reflect your payment.
How do I get a receipt when I pay my fines online?
If you include an email address with the credit card information you submit, a receipt will be sent automatically to that email address. A payment receipt also displays online and may be printed.
