So Much More than Just Books

Our libraries had a bumper year in 2018 with over 565,000 visitors, more than 20,000 people attending training or events, and 520,000 borrowed books, ebooks and audio books.

Overall it was a 15 percent increase of visitors since last year. What this shows is that people come to our libraries for more than books.

In 2019 we have something planned for everyone.
