Book and serial volumes added has decreased 20/8% since its 2008 peak.

I can't remember the last time I checked out a video from a library. My primary sources for recorded music nowadays are Sirius/XM, Spotify, and Luxuria. On the other hand, I remain a big fan of books on CD, a physical format, and am currently listening to -- and greatly enjoying -- Anne Tyler's Vinegar Girl.
