Eden Prairie Library By the Numbers – Lobby Display

Emily Lloyd writes:

Hi, Michael–

My coworker Marni came up with a great idea for one of our lobby bulletin boards: a display called “Eden Prairie Library by the Numbers.” Illustrated with photos taken in the branch, it includes stats like how many returns the library checks in every day (roughly 4000), how many storytimes we offer per week (8), how many items were checked out from our location last year (1,333,427), how many years the library has been part of the community (35), etc. The display was really popular with both patrons and staff–nice for patrons to see, in these strained economic times, exactly how much the library does in the community, and a good reminder to staff that we’re actually pretty amazing.

Here are some photos:

  1. This is a great reminder to the public just how hard libraries work to deliver their services despite the difficult economic times. Excellent idea!

  2. We should put this kind of photo thing on our web page somewhere, because we have no bulletin board space to display it.
