Out of Funding Area Card Policy
There shall be two types of cards for people living outside Codington County: a family card and a senior card. All costs for these cards shall be rounded to the nearest whole dollar. The cost of a one year family card will be approximately equal to the per capita tax support provided by the City of Watertown. The cost of a one year senior card will be based on 78% of the cost of a one year family card.

For the purpose of determining who shall be eligible for what type of card the library will use the following definitions. A senior is defined as any person 55 years or older. A family is defined as head of household and all dependents living at home for whom a federal tax deduction may be claimed.

The purchase of a family card makes all children in the family eligible for library programs offered for their age group.

Cards may be purchased for three months, six months, one year, or multiple years. Three month cards will cost one quarter of the cost of a one year card plus two dollars. A six month card will cost one half of the cost of a one year card plus one dollar. Multi-year cards will be sold at the one year card’s current rate at the time of the sale multiplied by the number of years being purchased. No refunds will be given for purchased cards.
