Our Annual Report for the 2011-2012 financial year is now available online.

It was an interesting year for your library and very busy too!

Our wonderful library users:

  • Borrowed 2.842 million items (up 9%) - not bad for a collection of nearly 375,000 items
  • Visited 1.376 million times (up nearly 7%)
  • Placed 348,000 holds (up over 11%)
  • Asked nearly 95,000 questions

There is much more to be found in our annual report, including:

  • Library users downloaded over 17,000 songs from our free music downloading service Freegal
  • DVD loan limits were increased from five to ten per library card
  • Library users were able to renew their own items online, up to 7 days overdue
  • and much, much more.....

Developments are ongoing - we still have a new library catalogue, a new library website and e-books on the horizon. But feel free to browse the report and discover what your library has achieved, with your help and maybe you'll discover something new about your library.
