Card Fees Non-Resident
As a non-resident you will be able to purchase a library card at a cost of $40.00 per card for six months, or $80.00 per card for 12 months. This card would give you access to services offered by the Saratoga Springs Library including programming, materials and digital services.
Did you know that libraries in Utah County 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 and services for its cardholders. Like most educational programs, the library works on a tight budget and every cent counts. 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.
