"I think the health of our civilization, the depth of our awareness about the underpinnings of our culture and our concern for the future can all be tested by how well we support our libraries."

~ Carl Sagan







Pay Fines and Fees or Make a Donation with Credit and Debit Cards

  • A third party provider (SmartPAY) is used in the process to pay fines, fees or donate, or otherwise initiate credit/debit card transactions via the library’s website.
  • The transaction is protected by SSL certification, a protocol for transmitting data securely.
  • SmartPAY also complies with PCI-DSS standards (PCI-DSS stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards.)
  • SAILS Library network and participating public Libraries do not collect or store any personal information or credit or debit card processing data collected from the SmartPAY site.
  • Library fines and fees are cleared automatically from your library account during the payment process.
  • A failed transaction may leave a pending charge on your account. These “pre-authorized” amounts normally clear within 24 hours.
  • When you select “SmartPAY” you are leaving the library website and have been directed to SmartPAY, an online resource to pay library fines and fees.  Technical requirements and services are the sole responsibility of SmartPAY. By proceeding you agree to accept and assume all risks and responsibilities for the losses and damages that may arise from your use of SmartPAY and release the SAILS Library Network and its member libraries from all liability.
  • SmartPAY requires a minimum $1.00 payment which can consist of multiple fines.  There is a $.25 credit card processing fee per transaction not per individual fine paid.
