Attendance was high in every category. The overall decrease was due to removing the bi-weekly teen D&D group.

Only in 2018 and 2019 have we ever had more SRP participants.

Hinckley is a net lender (loaning more interlibrary loans than we borrow), showing the strength of our collection.

Circulation showed a 15% increase, a rare bump in a normally downward trend.

Several magazines no longer publish in print.

Public computer usage jumped from 1,313 in FY21. That’s a 253% increase in two years!
