National Library Week

This week has been National Library Week, but based on our statistics over the last fiscal year, you might think that you, the patrons, have made every week a celebration of the library!

Did you know that from March 2011 through February 2012, Freeman Library . . . 

  • - Circulated over 1 million items
  • - Registered over 80,000 new library cards
  • - Offered 1,300 programs with almost 40,000 attendants
  • - Logged over 5 million minutes of public computer use

Those are amazing numbers!  Thank you, our patrons, for demonstrating that libraries still matter!
