Monthly Stats Brief Narrative

In September 2018, the number of patrons entering our buildings stayed about the same system-wide compared to this month the previous year. Combined physcial and digital use of library materials decreased year-to-date compared to 2017. About 11% 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
