As a courtesy, email notices are sent before due dates to encourage the prompt return of materials. Accounts owing over $50 and past due more than 60 days may be referred to a Library materials recovery firm. Patrons with outstanding fees may be restricted from borrowing materials.

To pay fines and fees, please visit the staff at the Quogue Library with a check, credit or debit card.
