The Evergreen ILS
Since 2016, member libraries have been charged an annual fee based on a tiered system reflecting a percentage of their annual expenditure. The following table represents the tiered fee structure approved by the Council in June 2014 together with current rates; these rates are subject to change annually. Funds are used to expand services and reduce reliance on grant funding.

Additional costs to the member library generally include hardware (see below for recommended hardware), staff time, additional INfoExpress deliveries (if needed; additional day subsidized for members), a broadband internet connection, and barcoding materials (library cards and item barcodes).
