Library Use Value Calculator

What is your library worth to you?

Curious how much the services the library provides you would cost if you had to pay for them directly? To find out, just enter in the lefthand column the number of times you or your family use each service listed down the center in the period of one month. The estimated retail value of each service will be calculated on the right, and the total value of your library use is shown at the bottom of the worksheet.
