What do you save by using the library each year?

This worksheet has been adapted from the Massachusetts Library Association and Chelmsford Library. How the values were calculated.


Now, think about the fact that you pay just $12.78 in taxes each year to support Aldrich. Other Vermont libraries receive on average $26.94 per capita in tax support. If you think the library is worth more than $12 a year, please consider donating to support our annual appeal. We need to raise $50,000 by the end of the year to meet our fundraising goal.





Most importantly, even if you can’t donate, please tell others what the library is worth to you!
