Numbers, Numbers

We have updated the Library Facts and Statistics page. It is always just a snapshot, but this time particularly the numbers are not a longterm statement of reality. As we build the collection for Southside, and then open up such a large new branch, everything about our numbers will change a lot.

Some of our favorite numbers: we will have $1.3 million in new materials when the Southside Library opens; and, at the moment, 23% of all our items were donated. That's 64,616 separate useful things that are in circulation which came directly from our users. (Thanks.)
