1.2 m items checked | 30k computer hours
Last month, more than 168,000 items were checked out and nearly 5,000 computer hours were logged in June, an increase of more than 6,000 items checked out and 1,000 computers hours from June 2015.
The McKinney Public Library System experienced record setting numbers in June, and this month are on pace to surpass them as adults and children check out books, attend events and participate in the summer reading program.
“Our libraries have focused our efforts on bolstering our partnership with the local schools to encourage childhood reading and participation in summer reading programs. As we’ve continued these relationships with the ISDs in McKinney, we’ve seen the participation at our events soar,” said Spencer Smith, Director of the McKinney Public Library System.
Several hundred people attended events such as a magic show with magician Todd McKinney and Zooniversity featuring live animals. Last year, summer programs attracted 9,800 attendees and this year, more than 7,500 have already participated in events with 24 programs still to come this July.
