Rising Circulation in the Time of COVID | East Hampton Public Library
May 28, 2021
Borrowing at the East Hampton Public Library has been steadily rising for the past four years. Even during the fall of 2020 when many libraries’ circulation plummeted, East Hampton's borrowing increased 3% compared to same months a year before. Library Director Ellen Paul and Children’s Librarian April Hannon outlined how they've been successfully increasing borrowing both before and during COVID, what it has meant for their library budget, what they would have done differently if they could do it over again and how they hope to continue the trend into the future.
This presentation was originally presented at the Connecticut Library Association 2021 Annual Conference: Libraries Meeting Challenges in a Changing World.
