- This study focuses on the relationship library service and residents’ willingness to pay for public library service in the city of Xi’an. As a means of quantifying an individual’s willingness to pay (WTP) for public library service, a contingent valuation method (CVM) was employed. A sample of 525 residents was chosen, based on the stratified sampling method. The respondents’ WTP was then elicited through a series of face-to-face interviews, conducted using a range of hypothetical, open-ended scenario questions. The results showed that 74.7% of respondents were able to express a positive WTP, and that the average WTP was 200 RMB per person, per year in Xi’an..
