Non-resident Card Fee
a) The public library board of trustees shall annually take action to decide whether to issue non-resident library cards during the ensuing 12 months. At that time, the non-resident library card fee formula and fee, if applicable, to be used will be determined and adopted.
b) The public library board of trustees shall notify the regional library system within 30 days of the action take and effective dates and fee formula as determined in this Part.
c) The participating public library shall continue to honor the non-resident library cards issued by the library for the full term of purchase.
d) Participating public libraries shall cooperate with other participating area public libraries and the regional library system and adjacent regional library systems to determine the appropriate non-resident service areas as stated in Section 3050.25 of this Part.
e) Nothing in this Part requires a public library to participate in the non-resident library card reciprocal borrowing program of a regional library system. Nonparticipation in the non-resident library card program does not preclude a public library from applying for and receiving grant funds from the Illinois State Library as long as the public library complies with requirements of the specific grant program.
Non-residents who reside outside the Messenger Public Library service area and not within the boundaries of any other public library service area may apply for a non-resident library card.
The annual fee for a card is calculated using the tax bill method per Illinois State Statutes and the Illinois Administrative Code.
A non-resident’s Property Tax Bill is used to calculate the Library Card Fee. The EAV (Equalized Assessed Value is 1/3 of the value of the property) is used to calculate the Non Resident Library Card Fee. The EAV of the property is located on the Kane County Real Estate Tax Bill. Patron needs to bring their copy of this tax bill.

This person would pay a fee of $96.00 to obtain a valid Messenger Public Library of North Aurora card valid for one year from the date it is issued.
(Annual Rent] x 15%) X [*Libraries Current Tax Rate] = Non-Resident Renter’s Annual Fee
The fee would be ($7800.00 x .15) x 0.00296870 = $35.00 (Round Number Up)
This person will pay $35.00 to obtain a Messenger Public Library of North Aurora card valid for one year from the date it is issued.
