Fee-Based Membership for Non-Residents

Why do I have to pay?

Although most residents in British Columbia are part of a library service and have universal access, people living in RDCK Areas E and part of H (including Slocan City), do not pay library taxes so are not eligible for a free library card at the Nelson Library.  The inclusion or exclusion of areas was determined through referenda in each area.

Please direct any concerns in this regard to your elected regional directors.
