Library statistics make interesting reading

 Library statistics make interesting reading
Friday 5th September 2014 by C. Freeman

Librarian Mrs Adams has collated data from the library over the last academic year and the figures make for some very interesting reading!

A minimum of 208,724 visits were made to the Library last academic year and the actual figure is likely to be far higher as the people counter does not record individuals going through as part of a crowd. Between 1,000 and 1,500 visitors entered the library each and every day, meaning that it is one of the most used facilities at Brooke Weston.
