Number Crunching

With the rise of the internet and all things digital it’s often assumed that the book is dead and libraries with it!  Not so if you look at the latest stats from Shropshire Library Services. The data  also shows that our libraries are providing so much more than just a book borrowing service.

In 2016/17:

Just over 1 million visits to libraries

Over 892,000 things borrowed 38,226 attendances at library events and activities

Over 13,000 hours of volunteer support given

Library computers used for over 74,000

Over 2,000 people using library Wi-Fi every month

In excess of 326,000 enquiries dealt with
