Monthly Stats Brief Narrative

Through October 2020, the number of patrons entering our buildings greatly decreased system-wide compared to this same time year-to-date the previous year. Combined physical and digital use of library materials greatly decreased year-to-date compared to 2019. About 6% of our registered cardholders checked out a physical item this past month, while about 2% of registered cardholders checked out a digital item.

Digital vs. Total Circs

Digital usage has comprised about 32% of total materials use year-to-date through October 2020, and digital usage slightly increased from this time in 2019.

In October 2020, BDL patrons saved $90,744.29 by checking out 7,510 physical items from the library. Our programming for all ages and our digital services further increase the library's value to the community, bringing the total estimated value to $125,356.63.
