Value of Library Calculator

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