CO-OP Purchasing Program

CO-OP Purchasing Program

In 1982, St. Louis Regional Library Network began cooperative purchasing with vendors to provide discounted rates for their members.  Today discounts are available from many vendors including Perma Bound, W.T. Cox, and Demco. The vendors have been provided with a current list of libraries who are members and eligible for these discounts.

The Cooperative Purchasing Manual is a list of vendors who provide these discounts to St. Louis Regional Library Network members. This service is intended to provide a cost savings to Network members, to promote Network membership by providing monetary savings on the purchase of various items.
