Why is the fee for non-residents to get an OPL library card for 1 year so high?
Before I go into the fee itself, what school do you attend? If you are a metro student, you are eligible for free access to our library system for the duration of your active enrollment. If you are not a metro student, it is possible to pay the $75 fee in $25 (for 4 months) increments. The fee is instead of the taxes that Omaha residents and Douglas county residents pay to support the library. Since out of county folks are not supporting the library through their taxes, they are asked to support it through a fee.
