Year in Review 2018-2019
Our community continues to visit the Library in its temporary home at the Sherborn Community Center and to take full advantage of available resources. Patrons are not only borrowing books and materials, but they are also enjoying time spent at the Library. Recent statistics compiled by Library staff indicate that circulation is up 8% overall, with 65% more checkouts for adult audiobooks. Usage of our new Library website, which went live in March 2018, was up 22%, with 27,934 total hits! More than 3,200 attendees enjoyed library programs - an increase of 18% - and use of databases available through the Library are all up. Interlibrary loans increased 14% as patrons continue to take advantage of our membership in the Minuteman Library Network while a majority of the collection is in storage.
