Did you know that every public library is eligible to receive E-rate discounts? At the very least, by filling out a few forms you can get as much as a 90% discount on your bills!
The telephone companies and the federal government collect this money from every telephone customer, but unless you ask for it, this money just sits in Washington.
NOTE: For information about 2014 E-Rate changes, see http://oplin.org/eratechanges
Because it is so important that libraries claim their E-rate money, OPLIN supports workshops on E-rate for public libraries each fall. The workshops are presented by Lorrie Germann, State E-rate Coordinator. Lorrie is also available to answer individual questions from public libraries about E-rate issues. You may contact Lorrie at 740-253-1153 or firstname.lastname@example.org
