Non-Resident Library Card Fees
Adopted November 15, 2012

Citizens living (or owning property) within the Ocean Shores City limits pay $.0247 per $1,000 assessed value. A $200,000 home would be $49.40 per year.

To insure that non tax payers residing outside of the Ocean Shores city limits bear the same cost as those tax payers in the City, a Non-Resident fee of $45.00 annually was approved by the Ocean Shores Public Library Board of Trustees on January 18, 2012.

Non-Resident North Beach School District Students with an ASB card or Home School Credentials may apply for library cards at no charge.

For Non-Residents, temporarily visiting Ocean Shores, a three month Individual or Family fee of $15.00 was approved.

Tax payers that live outside of Ocean Shores may see a library charge on their property tax statement, this supports the library in that region. For example, North Beach residents see a library charge that supports the Timberland Library System and their closest regional library is located in Hoquiam.
