Permanent residents may join the library free of charge with proof of Steinbach residency. Outside the city of Steinbach there is a non-resident fee of $95, with certain R.M.’s offering a rebate. Currently the R.M. of Hanover offers a $30 rebate, and the R.M. of St. Anne offers $50. The non-resident fee is paid on an annual basis and includes all members of a household.
