Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community Library: 2009-2014 annual circulation and program attendance

Admittedly, Retiring Guy spends more time highlighting the statistics of Wisconsin's larger public libraries, which is one of the reasons that I initiated this alphabetical series and decided to temporarily suspend this top-down look at 2009-2014 annual circulation and program attendance.

This series features a bottoms-up look at 2009-2014 annual circulation and program attendance.

All statistics found at Wisconsin Public Library Service Data.

2009-2014 comparisons

Library hours of operation:
  • Monday, Tuesday, Thursday.  8:30 a.m. to 5:30p.m.
  • Wednesday:  8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Friday:   9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
46.5 hours per week.  (Compared to 46 hours per week, on average, in 2009.)
