  1. Pro-bono lawyers and public libraries have in common that both require public resources and both help people who may not otherwise be able to afford their services. This helps people get over a hurdle where the financial cost could otherwise prevent them from solving a problem they are experiencing.

    Although I would imagine that the benefits would be so far-reaching and complex that they would be hard to quantify, I would guess that they bring in more money to a community than they cost. Which isn’t to say that they would only be justified if they long-term cover their costs, but this is something that many austerity-minded individuals (who have strong influence over the US government’s decision-making) will prioritize so I think it’s worth noting.

    One difference is that for pro bono lawyers, there are income thresholds, whereas anybody can use a public library without means-testing.

    1. Very good points, Masha, thank you for pointing this out: pro bono legal and financial aid, as well as on-going legal and financial education, need to be universally available for free.
