Library Services Value Calculator

The Denver Public Library has installed a Return on Investment Calculator that allows users to calculate their monthly return on investment as taxpayers and overall value they receive from the library.

Very well done article in The Denver Post.

Found via The Lone Wolf Librarian

Please note further credits for the calculator in the first comment. Thanks, Walt.

Nice to see this being used again--but credit should also go to the Massachusetts Library Association (which originally provided the worksheet), Chelmsford Public Library in Mass. (which adapted it for the web), and Maine State Library (which added accessibility coding and reformatted it). Variations on that calculator are being used in quite a few states and libraries.
