Member Benefits

The Northeast Ohio Regional Library System recognizes the importance of enhancing the value of your membership by providing key services in addition to our workshops and webinars.  Services are geared toward helping maximize use of your time and financial resources.  Our agreements with major vendors such as Ingram and Baker and Taylor include discounts up to 45%.  In addition, members save on a wide variety of consulting services including strategic planning, staff day planning, e-rate filing, and visual identity assessment. Gold, Silver and Bronze Members are also able to take advantage of significant cost-savings on circulating collections for Book Discussion Groups, videogames, STEAM e-kits, the e-Health and other Tech Labs Geographic Members enjoy many of the same services at additional cost.

NEO-RLS offers a broad spectrum of services that are appropriate for any size or type of library or system. If you have an idea for a service, please contact us to discuss. We'd love to hear your feedback.
