In April 2006, the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh released the report on its return-on-investment study.
See the report, Economic Impact Study: Regional Benefits of Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, at http://www.clpgh.org/about/economicimpact/.

Also, stay tuned for breaking news about our own ROI study which is in progress. Eight libraries are participating, including: Cortez Public Library, Denver Public Library, Douglas County Libraries, Eagle Valley Library District, Fort Morgan Public Library, Mesa County Public Library District, Montrose Library District, and Rangeview Library District.
