In Fiscal Year 2013/2014, the Wayne County Braille and Talking Book Library1 lent 43,680 items and answered about 7,300 reference questions for 1,323 Wayne County residents with disabilities. Six hundred thirty-nine people attended thirty-nine programs, including book discussions, tax help, and a vision impairment support group.
If you were to assign a value to these numbers, the result would be over $495,000, according to the American Library Association’s Library Value Calculator. With local operating expenses just under $350,000 for the fiscal year, the return on investment for the Wayne County Braille and Talking Book Library was around 40%.
