In accordance with the Policy on Borrowing Privileges, persons not resident in and not served by the Pierce County Library System, who reside or own property in incorporated towns and cities whose jurisdiction provides public library service, are eligible to obtain library borrowing privileges through payment of an annual non-resident fee. This non-resident borrowing privilege will cover the immediate family members residing in the cardholder's household.
The non-resident card fee shall be calculated from the total amount of revenue anticipated to be levied for property taxes plus fees for contracting incorporated towns and cities, divided by the population of the library system, multiplied by the number of individuals in an average family in Pierce County, from the most recent estimate by the Puget Sound Regional Council, and rounded to the nearest whole dollar.
The non-resident fee shall be set annually by the Executive Director, based on the above calculation. Any revisions will become effective each January 1st.
Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Pierce County Rural Library District, February 12, 1998.
