The Chelmsford (MA) Library has an interesting marketing tool on their website...they ask readers to estimate how much money they would spend on services that the library offers completely free, such as Interlibrary Loan, computer hours, programs, etc. and ties a monetary value to each.

The library encourages librarians & webmasters to add the calculator to their own websites.
