Library Use Value Calculator – Updated for 2012

The NHLA Library Use Value Calculator shows, on average, how much an individual or family would need to pay out-of-pocket if they purchased their books, movies, and other library services in stores.  This nifty tool has been kicking around our website for years, but thanks to a recent suggestion, it has now been updated to include ebooks.  The average taxpayer contribution figure has also been updated, based on the most recent NH Public Library Annual Report.  We hope you find this tool useful.  You can easily access it under the “Resources” tab in the top navigation bar.

NHLA’s websites (NHLA, READS and READS-TO-GO)

The NHLA websites have continued to get significant numbers of visits.  I hope to bring aboard the CHILIS and URBANS sites in the next 6-12 months.

As of March 9:

  • The NHLA website had been visited 3,725 times in the past 30 days.
  • Our blog has 47 email subscribers, 11 Bloglines subscribers, 25 Google Reader subscribers, and 5 NetVibes subscribers.

Top 10 webpages (excluding the home page) based on the number of hits within the last 4 weeks, (see bar graph below as well.)  Congratulations to the READS-TO-GO folks for having the #1 page.

2006 NH Public Library Annual Report Survey

This comes from Tom Ladd at the NH State Library:

As of this afternoon, the 2006 NH Public Library Annual Report (NHPLAR) Survey is open for every public library in NH to report their statistics for 2006.  This information is due by 13 July 2007.  Full details are at http://www.nh.gov/nhsl/lds/public_library_stats.html.
