State law (IC 36-12-2-25(c)) requires that an individual nonresident fee be established for a local library card; and the minimum fee that the board may set under the statute is the greater of the following: (1) The library district’s operating fund expenditure per capita in the most recent year for which that information is available in the Indiana state library’s annual “Statistics of Indiana Libraries” or (2) Twenty-five dollars ($25).
The individual nonresident fee for 2019 of $55 is based on the library’s 2018 per capita operating expenditures. Nonresident fees may be paid at any time during the year then renewed at the end of twelve months at the new rate for that calendar year.
2018 Operating Fund expenditures: $737,990
2010 Census Bureau library district population: 14,437
