Membership

Membership

TBLC and its member libraries work to encourage collaboration, resource sharing, staff development, and innovations to ensure that the people of central Florida receive excellent, up-to-date library services and have access to the world of information. Libraries in Citrus, DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, Hernando, Highlands, Hillsborough, Indian River, Lake, Manatee, Okeechobee, Orange, Osceola, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, Sarasota and Saint Lucie counties can be members of TBLC.

Members are held to the TBLC Membership criteria and are governing members of the Consortium. When a new library applies for membership in TBLC their membership application is presented to the TBLC Board of Directors for approval. If approved, a vote for membership is taken up at the following TBLC Annual Membership meeting

Membership Criteria

To qualify for full membership, libraries must meet the membership criteria:

  1. Member libraries are encouraged to participate in the Florida Interlibrary Loan Network (FLIN) to provide information and materials to Florida library users and to maintain their bibliographic records in the Florida Catalog, OCLC WorldCat.
  2. Member libraries have at least one full-time person with a degree in library and information science or experience in library administration.
  3. Member libraries have materials and services sufficient to meet minimum needs of their clientele.
Dues are based upon expenditures in previous fiscal year. Surveys are conducted periodically. TBLC annually determines if there has been a change in status. Official statistical reports and surveys are used to determine expenditures in the most recently completed fiscal year.

Dues Schedule:  (Effective October 2012)

For libraries of all types, membership rates are based on your organizational budget below:

Under $100,000: $500
$100,000 – $749,999: $600
$750,000 – $1,499,999: $750
$1,500,000 – $2,999,999: $1,000
$3,000,000 – $4,999,999: $1,250
$5,000,000 – $9,999,999: $1,500
Over $4,999,999: $2,500


A vote of the full members at the TBLC Annual Meeting in November is required to change the dues schedule. Changes are implemented in the following fiscal year, beginning the next October.
