DEARBORN — Providing services to residents since 1969, the Dearborn Public Library successfully increased its circulation numbers as it also promoted its many resources during its lively campaign to reach a half million checkouts in 2018.
More than 498,220 materials were checked out, which include traditional library materials such as books, compact discs and DVDs. Digital checkouts include music, movies, ebooks and e-magazines.
Although the primary checkout goal was not reached last year, Julie Schaefer, deputy library director, said the campaign reached many other goals. The library’s circulation number increased over the past two years.
The campaign raised the public’s awareness regarding the products and programs offered in Dearborn’s public libraries.
Moreover, the library has also implemented a new app to be used as a search catalog. It can also be used to manage holds and renewals, view upcoming events, connect with social media and get directions and current hours.
The app can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store by searching “Dearborn Public Library.”
