New Fees & Fines

ohio_statehouse_credit_rod_berry.png

Due to economic uncertainties and a decline in public library revenue from the State, the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library will be increasing library fines & fees for some of its services beginning April 26th. In 2008 the library received $150,000 less state revenue than in 2007. According to the Ohio Library Council financial projections for tax revenue for 2009, public libraries can expect a drop in Public Library Funding (PLF) of 7-8% overall from 2008.

New Fees for Interlibrary Loan

Our library is part of several groups of libraries which lend freely to one another. There is no charge for Interlibrary Loan if we can get the item from one of these lenders.

We have another system which lets us borrow items from a wider selection of libraries across the nation, but this system is costly. Because of recent budget cutbacks, we are forced to begin charging for this service; there is a $3.00 per item charge to use this system.
