A Great Return on Investment

You spend $1, the Library returns nearly $4

The Library partnered with Howard Fleeter & Associates for a Return on Investment Study to gauge the benefits of your taxpayer dollars. We are happy to share that for every $1 invested in the library, we return nearly $4 in benefits to the public.
