As we pointed out in a post last month, we've been very busy here at the Santa Fe Public Library. According to a new graphic released by the New Mexico State Library, this doing more (circulation and programming) with less (money and staff) is a statewide library epidemic.
The following graph illustrates the percent change from 2008 to 2009. It'll be interesting to see how this Needs vs. Resources plays out in 2010. If January is any indication, the gap may be even wider.
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to get some more coffee.
