Library Value Calculator


What is your library worth to you?

How valuable is your local library? How much is your public library saving you?

Public libraries offer their communities an excellent variety of recreational and educational resources.

How much would you pay to purchase books or other library items and services if they were not provided by your public library?

To find out, check out our Calculator!

  • Enter in the left hand column the number of times per month you or your family use each service.
  • Estimated retail value of each service (if purchased) will be calculated on the right.
  • Total value of your library use is shown at the bottom of the worksheet.
