PELHAM, N.Y. -- Despite the serenity at the Pelham Public Library, the site generates a frenetic pace of activity, according to a report, "How Many Books Did Pelhamites Borrow In 2015?" on the library's website.
In the library's Annual Report to the New York State Department of Education, circulation, the size and growth of the collection, attendance at programs and more is included, according to the article.
In 2015, 106,597 items were checked out at the library, said the report.
The checked out items include print materials, electronic media and downloaded files, the report said.
Borrowers took out 23,111 items via the InterLibrary Loan Program from other libraries, and an additional 12,468 items from the Pelham Library were loaned and checked out to patrons at one of the other 38 member libraries in the Westchester Library System and elsewhere, the article said.
In addition, the library added 2,865 print books to its collection in 2015 and 3,324 other materials (primarily e-books and e-audiobooks and some audio and video products in-house), according to the report.
