wiper fluid low

I recently get this warning. Can I go to a dealership and asked them to fill the wiper fluid, or I have to pay for it? If I have to pay, what is the cheapest way to do it?

Thanks!! Happy holidays!

Question Is it possible to replace battery DIY?

I don't plan to do it now as it would void my warranty, but say after a few years when I don't want to spend 1500 for a battery, do I have the option to DIY?
