What is your library worth to you?
Ever wonder what you are saving by using the library? Ever wonder what our services would cost if you had to purchase them? Use this calculator developed by the Massachusetts and New York Library Associations to find out. We think you'll be surprised!
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.
Tip: Tab between entries and do not use commas.
The calculator worksheet has been adapted from the downloadable spreadsheet, originally provided by the Massachusetts Library Association and then adapted for the web by Chelmsford Public Library. Maine State Library added extra accessibility coding and reformatting for ease of reading online.
