How much does the San Rafael Public 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 one page report highlighting the most interesting numbers from the last year!

Digital branch use continues to increase by leaps and bounds: the number of visitors to our website is up an astounding 37%, digital resource/database use increased 5%, eBooks and eAudiobooks use increased 13%, followers on Twitter increased 16%, and fans on Facebook (Downtown and Pickleweed accounts) increased 6%.
