If you live in Berlin or already pay for your library membership, please read the information below.
Residents of BERLIN
On Town Meeting Day March 5, 2013 the citizens of Berlin voted not to support Kellogg-Hubbard Library’s financial request for budget year 2013-2014. Because of this vote Berlin residents will now be required to pay an annual membership fee in order to borrow library materials as of July 1, 2013.
The 2013-2014 rates are as follows:
· Adult (ages 16 - 64) $40.00
· Senior (age 65 or over) $35.00
Non-Resident Borrower Fees
The new rate for Non-resident patrons goes into effect on July 1st, 2013, for all Vermont and out-of-state residents who do not reside in the Library’s tax-supported areas (Calais, East Montpelier, Middlesex, Montpelier, and Worcester).
There is no longer a family or couple’s card. Each patron, if he or she is part of a group account, must have the card in hand to check out materials. (A parent or guardian may check out items for children under the age of 16 on their card, unless they choose to purchase an additional card for their child.) If you are the card holder and don’t have the card with you, it is understood that records may be discussed and may be within hearing of other parties.
These changes are being made in accordance with Vermont State Privacy laws which are stated in (The Vermont Statutes, Title 22: Libraries, History, and Information Technology, Chapter 4: LIBRARY PATRON RECORDS).
