Library Fees

Library fees charged by two public libraries located within Buffalo County and ten libraries in Trempealeau, Pepin and Eau Claire counties grew to almost $86,000.

The total goes up to over $91,000 when adding in $6,112 for membership in Winding Rivers Library System based in La Crosse.

State law permits public libraries to charge fees to counties annually for every item loaned to users living outside library jurisdictional borders.

The fees are exempt from county property tax limits. Buffalo County will spread the cost on to property owners.
