San Rafael Public Library

How much does your library get used?

Posted by sarah on

We at the San Rafael Public Library are so pleased that our neighbors continue to use the library’s services so heavily. That’s what we’re here for, after all! The library was used more than ever over the last year.

Take a look at our annual report highlighting the most interesting numbers from the last year!

SuccessWe had a 23% increase in event attendance for youth and an amazing 183% increase in event attendance for adults! Part of that is our focus on offering more, and more different kinds of, events that our neighbors are asking for.

Over the last year we’ve added 14,004 new items to our shelves. Whoa!

And our digital branch is thriving–the number of eBooks and eAudioBooks you all downloaded went up by 23%–in one year!

Finally, you’re asking us more research questions. We saw a 13% bump in the number of times our librarians were able to help you with your research and technology needs. Keep those questions coming!
