Let’s talk about how the library is worth its weight in gold. If the library’s annual budget is divided by the number of people living in Pittsfield ( $82,165.00 /4,120) each person in the community is contributing $19.94 to the library.
The average cost of a new book/DVD/audio is about $25.00.
The library has over physical13,500 items, and over 500,000 digital resources to loan to you!
Here is a library calculator. If each person checked out just one book/DVD/audio per year you would be saving money.
That does not include the savings a community member receives when they attend a free event hosted by the library.
Consider checking out a movie, book or audio book or attending an upcoming library event.
