You see, the experts say that an economic impact analysis of public libraries aren't generally doable or worth doing, except for very large ones (e.g., New York Public).
I say, Phooey! Both the city and the Old Town merchants, for example, admit that my Library is the single greatest reason people come downtown.
And I think that if you can define it, you can measure it, at least a little bit.
Mom taught me that. I owe it all to her. That's why I'm giving her this big plate of freshly baked scones.
