Price Increase for Family History Library Films

I don't know about you, but I still use microfilm from the Family History Library on a regular basis.  It will still be several years before everything in the mountain is digitized and available online.  A message went out to Family History Center directors today that prices to rent Family History Library films will increase as of February 15, 2012, due to increases in the prices of microfilm stock, decreasing availability of the stock, and higher shipping costs.  The new prices for the United States and Canada will be:

Short-term film loan:  $7.50  + tax = $8.12
Short-term film loan extension:  $7.50 + tax = $8.12
Extended film loan:  $18.75 + tax = $20.30

The cost for microfiche will remain at $4.75 + tax = $5.14.
