We offered more programs this year than ever before. Attendance is back to pre-Covid levels.

Summer Reading participation is slowly climbing but is still down 24% from our biggest year (2019).

Interlibrary loan numbers are leveling out after an enormous increase in the Covid years.

Checkouts are showing a downward trend across the last ten years as library service evolves into more than just books.

Audio books increased in popularity as workers are back to commuting.

$21,030 was spent on materials including books, audio, DVDs, magazines, and e-books.

New public computers were purchased with a grant this year. The usage shows they're a great improvement!
