Conkis: The value of your public library
It’s easy to take the library for granted. For those who are newer to our community, or are in the younger generation, the library always has been part of their lives here.
However, those who lived here before 1975 recognized that the community was missing an important resource, and worked diligently to bring library service to La Grange Park.
The value of the library has many facets. It’s easy to determine how much value you get each time you use the library. One of our patrons did her own math and told me that she saves about $250 a year in movie rentals by borrowing DVDs from the library. If you want to get more specific, there is a great “Library Value Calculator” on the www.ilovelibraries.org website. You plug in the resources you used and it tells you what it would cost for you to buy those materials or services.
