Pricing

Pricing for the Sustainable Libraries Initiative is based on a library’s budget. Membership is paid annually at the “Pre-Certification Rate” until completion of the program.

Upon completion there are two options for membership. With both options you will continue to have access to the SLI website and be an active member in the community. The Post Certification w/ GBP option allows you continued access to the Green Business Partner’s website. This option is best for libraries who would like carry on tracking their greenhouse gas emissions.

Why do I have to pay?
While we would love for everyone to have unlimited free access to the program, ironically it would be unsustainable on our end. Your membership fees help to support the people (staff) and things (websites, listservs, events, etc.) that make up the building blocks of the Sustainable Libraries Initiative.

Please be advised that once access has been granted to the Sustainable Library Certification Program materials, no refunds or pro-rating of participation fees will be made.

Registration fees are good for one year from the time the program is begun
