We know library users value the services and resources provided by your public library, but just how much are those services worth? How much would they pay out-of-pocket if the library didn't exist, or if these services and resources weren't available at no cost?
The Library Use & Return on Investment Value Calculator is an opportunity for local residents to estimate the value of their monthly library use. This page calculates a total value related to the items checked out and the services and resources used. It also calculates a "return on investment" that is based on the per capita library expenditures in your community.
