One Hour in the Library

Based on annual library use, every hour the Library is open:

  • 191 items are checked out. That’s one every 19 seconds.
  • 20 people attend a Library program – though many programs are presented at other locations, throughout the community, such as daycares, schools and local businesses.
  • 10 people use a PC. The average session is 43 minutes of use.
  • 17 people ask a reference question. Questions like “where’s the restroom?” don’t count.

Annually, residents check out more than 600,000 items, nearly 65,000 attend a library program or class, over 32,000 use a computer in the library and more than 57,000 questions are asked and answered.
