Comments on the original post:Where does the statement "These are the three libraries with the lowest circulation rates – Aurora Hills (4.9%), Cherrydale (4.4%) and Glencarlyn (2.3%)" comes from? More importantly, what are the numbers for the other branches and Central?Posted by: Ralph Silberman | February 26, 2009 at 12:33 PM The circulation numbers cited are from Fiscal Year 2008 statistics, the most recent complete set of numbers we have. Here is the entire breakdown:Central= 41.6 percentShirlington= 8.4 percentWestover= 7.5 percentColumbia Pike= 6.9 percentAurora Hills= 4.9 percentCherrydale= 4.4 percentGlencarlyn= 2.3 percentPlaza Branch Library operates on a unique schedule without evening and weekend hours so its circulation numbers were below one percent for FY 2008, the first year of its operation.Because patrons can renew materials online, the Library website circulation was 23.1 percent, higher than any physical location except Central.Posted by: Diane Kresh, Director, Arlington Public Library | February 27, 2009 at 02:38 PM
