Maine's Library Use Value Calculator

The Maine State Library has created a nice value calculator for their library system:

http://www.maine.gov/msl/services/calculator.htm

From the Maine Library's standpoint the nicest part about it is that it makes the clear connection between use and dollars. I would be quite surprised if library users were able to walk away from the calculator thinking they're not getting their money's worth from the tax dollars that they spend.

From the standpoint of other libraries, they owe Maine some words of thanks for opening up their code and making this tool available to other libraries.
