Library Use Value Calculator

Ever wondered how much your household would have to pay out-of-pocket for the services your library provides? Want to estimate the return on investment (ROI) for your library tax dollars? Our

We've preloaded the calculator with numbers reflecting our patrons' average monthly household usage. If you'd like to change the numbers to reflect your household's specific usage, simply

service in the right hand column. At the bottom, the total monthly value of your library usage will be displayed, as well as the return on investment (ROI) for
a typical West Linn taxpaying household.

Tip: Tab between entries and do not use commas.
