[ARCHIVED] Non-Resident?

non-res SSPL card newsflash 3-23

Don't live in Saratoga Springs, but want to find out how get a card with the Saratoga Springs Public Library? 

Did you know that libraries are supported by the taxes you pay to your city? Libraries aren’t actually free. It costs money to purchase shaker eggs and scarves, books and speakers, paper towels and sanitizer. The library uses the funds it receives from taxes to provide the programs for its cardholders. Like most educational programs, the library works on a tight budget and every cent counts. When you pay your city taxes, you are helping the library in your city. We’d love to invite everyone to attend our programs! Having more kids come does mean we need to purchase more shaker eggs and other items, though, and our space is small, so we need to limit the amount of kids that come at once - which is why we ask for those that attend our programs to have a card with the Saratoga Springs Public Library and to register for the  program. If you’re a resident, awesome! Thanks for supporting us! If you’re a non-resident of our city but want to use our library, awesome! We’re glad literacy and early childhood education is important to you. Non-residents can come read our books in the library and play at Community Play for free; if they want to utilize the full benefits of our library, such as attending programming and being able to check out & take home the awesome array of items we have, we ask them to pay for a card because their tax money doesn’t go to our city.
