Monthly Stats Brief Narrative

Through April 2022, the number of patrons entering our buildings greatly increased system-wide compared to this same time year-to-date the previous year. Combined physical and digital use of library materials increased year-to-date compared to 2021. About 12% of our registered cardholders checked out a physical item this past month, while about 4% of registered cardholders checked out a digital item.

Digital vs. Total Circs

Digital usage has comprised about 22% of total materials use year-to-date through April 2022, and digital usage somewhat decreased from this time in 2021.

In April 2022, BDL patrons saved $103,298.10 by checking out 9,613 physical items from the library. Our programming for all ages and our digital services further increase the library's value to the community, bringing the total estimated value to $129,883.36.
