More than half of readers reject tutoring fees

MORE than half of the readers responding to a poll on tutoring fees at Orange City Library believe they should not exist.

Tutors currently have to pay $5 a student a lesson.

Of the 373 respondents, 54.7 per cent supported no fee, 28.9 per cent supported an annual fee and 16.3 per cent supported the $5 fee.

Comments on social media were also mixed.

A tutor asked the council to implement a yearly fee on Tuesday, saying the $4000 she paid a year did not reflect the library resources she used.

A report will be brought back to councillors next Thursday.
