Lansing Public Library to accept payments via Internet

Lansing Public Library, has announced participation in an Internet payment service that will be available to the community.

Lansing Public Library has partnered with the office of Illinois State Treasurer Judy Baar Topinka to offer a new service called E-Pay. The E-Pay program was launched by Topinka’s office in 2000 under a state master services agreement that is available for all counties and local governments in Illinois to participate in.

“We are pleased to help move the library into the 21st century.” Assistant Library Director Patricia Higgins said, “Our E-Pay electronic payment service will provide greater convenience to the community and increase the services offered by the library.”

The library’s E-Pay service has started with fee payment and donations to Friends of Lansing Public Library. E-Pay will allow you to make your payments over the Internet with cardholders of MasterCard, American Express and Discover card brands. A transaction, or user fee, is added to the payment amount for the convenience of the Internet service. The state and local participants who use this program do not receive any revenue from the convenience fee.

Payments are being accepted now and the Library invites patrons to visit the library's web site, http://www.lansing.lib.il.us/ to see how the payment service can work for them!
