Guess how many books we've checked out this (fiscal) Year!

We move a lot of books.

I thought you might be interested to know that 433,711 books, DVDs, and CD audiobooks have been checked out of LSC-Tomball Community Library branch  since March 1st, the beginning of our fiscal year.  That's our part in over seven million total checkouts across the county in that time. We move a lot of books!

We have also checked out an impressive number of electronic books. Since March 1st,  328,558 Adult and Young Adult electronic books and e-audiobooks have checked out across Harris County Public Library's reach, plus 80,483 children's TumbleBooks electronic books, for an eBook total of 298,799. This summer we added a collection of electronic audio books called OneClickdigital and already there are just under 5,000 checkouts from that  catalog.
