There is a great calculator available to anyone via the Maine State Library website:
http://www.state.me.us/msl/services/calculator.htm. I thought it would be interesting to find out what my own use of the Falmouth Memorial Library would be for a typical two-week period. My total savings is based on the following usage:
Five Books from our library shelves
Five books via Interlibrary Loan
Total saved: $410.00
The explanation for how the values were calculated can be found at:
Granted, I don’t usually purchase DVDs, but even the cost of renting them is at least $1.00 per movie.
Check out the value of our library to you and let us know what you think!
