To help defray operating costs, counties are charged a handling fee of $3 per title for all materials borrowed for use in Cooperative Extension-related programs. The only exception is that up to 5 dairy and livestock skillathons may be borrowed for $3. Materials for all other programs (e.g. Transportation Information Center titles, materials borrowed for use by commercial garden centers, etc.) are subject to a $10 per item handling fee. All borrowers are responsible for return postage.
Most charges are billed to the county offices by Extension Publications as part of the monthly billing process. The Transportation Information Center covers the charges for materials borrowed from their collection.
If you have any questions about fees, please call Katy Sticha at (608) 262-3514/(800) 353-3514.
