(CNN) - A library in Massachusetts is fed up with people not paying fines for their overdue library books.

And to make matters worse, someone paid their fines with Chuck E Cheese and Bonkers tokens.

The bookkeeper at the library says at first she counted three tokens before realizing they weren't actual money.

So the library posted a message on Facebook asking patrons to stop trying to pay fines and printing fees with game tokens.

The message also let people know that they cannot accept Canadian coins either.
