Hood River County Library District is supported by a permanent tax base at a rate of $0.39 per $1,000 of assessed property value within the county. This tax base was created when voters approved measure 14-39 on November 2, 2010. The district receives between $1070,000 and $1090,000 in tax revenue annually.
In addition to taxes, the district receives monies from fees, interest earnings, agreements with other government entities, private and public grants, and donations. Most of these donations are raised by the library’s two support groups, the Friends of the Hood River County Library and the Hood River County Library Foundation. The District makes a modest amount of income on charges for things such as copies, non-resident cards, and commercial meeting room use. Here is the current schedule of fees that the District charges.
For detailed information about the district’s revenues and expenditures, please refer to the budgets.
