Collection Agency and Payment Plans
Linebaugh Public Library System is obligated to attempt the recovery of all outstanding debt and/or library materials. To that end, patrons with fines or fees of $25 or more are subject to contact from Unique Collection Agency. A non-negotiable collection fee will be applied to the account of any patron who reaches this threshold.
Patrons whose accounts have been sent to collection may establish a payment plan with their local branch library. The payment plan will involve an initial payment, followed by regular installments until the patron’s record is once again in good standing. If your account is past due, contact the Circulation Department to make the necessary payment arrangements.
