If you think our libraries are pretty busy when you visit, you're right.
Here's some hot-off-the-press statistics from the 2014/15 business year:
- 4.46 million items were issued
- 3.7 million people visited
- Just under 870,000 enquiries were answered
- Over 105,000 programme attendances
- 6.45 million website visits
- 1.65 million digital content transactions
What makes us really smile is this quote from a happy customer who completed the recent Libraries Customer Satisfaction Survey :
My library card is one of my most valuable possessions. Having access to a library means I always have a source of information, entertainment and sanctuary. I am rich indeed.
Kia ora to all our customers, and if you haven't gone to the LibrarySide yet - come along, we'd love to you to join us.
