Tier 2 – up to 7 members:
The intermediate type of library in terms of ACESL membership. Slightly larger organisations are often run by a sole trader or a team, usually as a dedicated sling library service. It is usual for a tier 2 service to be a source of income for at least one carrying support worker, on a part time basis. Stock levels are usually broader, a carrier collection with breadth and depth allowing for more support hours to be offered, usually across more than one venue. Stock levels, average hire rate or regular support hours are average or slightly above average when compared to other sling library services in the area, or in an area of comparative character and density.
