 What’s your library worth to you?

The library provides a lot of intangible value but did you ever wonder about the financial value you receive from your library?  Winnefox has posted a calculator that estimates what you would have to pay for the materials and services you receive from your library if the library didn’t exist.  If you enter in where you live it also calculates the amount of return you receive from your tax support of the library.  Check it out at www.winnefox.org/roi.html
