Record Breaking - Yet Again

Over 3,900 people have registered for Summer Reading at just past the halfway point in the program. Wow! That's over 2,200 children, 550 teens, and 1,000 adults.

It's kind of funny that the staff seems to be inured to breaking records. With all of our growth for the past 10 years, the library district breaks records with startling regularity. Hardly a month goes by without one - from circulating over half a million items last fiscal year to reaching over 25,000 active cardholders, from over 5,000 holds placed by patrons in a single month to moving over 5,000 items through the Circulation Department in a single day. In the overall "busy-ness" of our days, they sometimes pass unnoticed.

So to celebrate our success, I'll be including all of our record breaking activities here. In the next few weeks, we're likely to have quite a few, between Summer reading and the end of our fiscal year on June 30.
