Provision of Library Service to New Areas Policy

The Fort Vancouver Regional Library District (District) shall consider requests to provide library service to Washington residents outside the District’s legal boundaries:

  1. By a governmental jurisdiction to contract for services, or
  2. As a result of a successful election by a city to annex to the district.

When full service is provided, the District will charge the jurisdiction or its residents at the same rate that is assessed within the District’s boundaries.

When partial or specific services are provided, the services shall be provided on the basis of a negotiated contract.

Such requests will only be considered when terms of the agreement are favorable to both parties.
