3/4 of a Million - Incredible!

With the Library's fiscal year ending on June 30, the statistics for the year are starting to come in. We knew it was a busy year for us, but the numbers are amazing! This year, the Library circulated 756,936 items.

This is absolutely astonishing, with only 131,550 items in the Library's collection. That means every item in the Library was checked out an average of nearly 6 times in the past year. Use of PCs in the Library rose almost 20%, with over 50,000 sessions for the year, averaging 46 minutes per session. That's over 38,000 hours of computer time for our community in the past year, not counting those who brought their own wireless devices and enjoyed the Library's wi-fi!
