From the Director: Yay Us! — KDL & You!

Congratulations! A comparison of Kent District Library usage data with figures recently reported in Public Libraries magazine (Sept./Oct. 2011) reveals that KDL is outpacing the national average for communities our size. For example, our library visits per capita, circulation per capita and collection turnover (how often an item is checked out in a given year), were nearly two times higher than the national average.

What does this mean to you? It’s proof positive that you love KDL and the wonderful materials and services you find in our libraries. While we don’t need numbers to tell us this, these figures help prove that KDL has some of the most avid library users in the country!

Thank you for using your public library and making KDL way above average.
