It’s time to reflect back on 2023 at the library! By all measures, it was a successful year. Here are some highlights:

  • In 2023, 7,740 people attended programs and events sponsored by the library. That’s up 227% over 2022.

  • 36,225 people visited the library in 2023, up 29% over 2022
  • Our collection holds 48,881 items, and circulation jumped 13% to 31,865
  • eBook and audio borrows through the Libby app increased by 53% in 2023, totaling 5,280 downloads
  • 2,847 people enjoyed fresh fruits and vegetables through Farm-2-Library
  • Patrons composted 6,917 pounds of food and organic waste through our partnership with Adirondack Worm Farm

Looking forward to the library’s future, we can anticipate more growth for program participation and more community needs to fill. This brings us to our budget, and the May 21, 2024 public vote for the library referendum on the school ballot.
