Library Use Calculator
Are you curious about how much you would pay out-of-pocket for library services if you
had to purchase them directly? This calculator can make it easy to find out!
- Just enter in the left column the number of times you used each service
during the last month (use the TAB key to get to the next row).
- The estimated cost of each service will be automatically calculated.
- The total value of your monthly use of the library will show at the bottom
of the table.
- If you would like to know how values for these services were calculated,
will explain each service listed.
This calculator was adapted from a downloadable spreadsheet developed by the
Massachusetts Library Association. It
was adapted for the web by Chelmsford
Public Library, and the version here includes additional enhancements by the Maine
State Library and Dallas Public Library.
