LIBRARY MEMBERSHIP


NEO-RLS  offers three paid membership levels, which are available for purchase at any point during our fiscal year at a pro-rated price. All libraries in the region are automatically granted geographic member status; however, unlike our three paid membership levels, geographic membership does not provide discounts on NEO-RLS services.

By joining as a paid member, your library will save on our core continuing education and consulting services as well as technology demos, staff day planning, and collection sharing. Discover the cost savings of paid membership by reviewing our complete list of services.

Contact us to discuss membership benefits and cost savings or click here to become a member now.
PUBLIC LIBRARY MEMBERSHIP
Public library membership in NEO is based on your library's total FTE and on minimum/maximum restrictions. For cost estimates specific to your library, please see our most recent list of membership costs for all Geographic member libraries.

GOLD Membership ($125/FTE) provides FREE continuing education and consulting for $100/hour with 4 FREE hours. 
SILVER Membership ($100/FTE) provides FREE webinars and archives and a 50% discount on all other continuing education and consulting at $125/hour.
BRONZE Membership ($75/FTE) provides FREE archived webinars and a 25% discount on all other continuing education and consulting at $150/hour.

SCHOOL, ACADEMIC, AND SPECIAL LIBRARY MEMBERSHIP
Academic, School and Special libraries can become GOLD Members for the flat rate fee of $250 per year.

Here is a list of current members.
