  • Library Use: Past vs. Present

    Library use has skyrocketed since our current facility was built in 1981. In 1981, there were no computers installed in the library. Currently we house 69 public access computers that are filled daily. There were a total of 110 meeting room reservations in 1981. Last year alone, there were over 4,100 meetings and events held in the library.
