Where did these numbers come from?
Typical taxpayer contributions are determined from the library's 2015 local income per capita. For libraries in Indiana, this can be found at http://www.in.gov/library/plstats.htm.
We borrowed value of library service figures from Maine State Library's Library Use Value Calculator. For more information, see their explanation.
