Hot Springs Library Strives to Meet Needs of Community

A staff of four and around 15 volunteers at the Hot Springs Library are aiming to meet the needs of the community, reports the Hot Springs Star. The library offers a variety of services to its patrons, including e-books, test proctoring, children’s programs and more.

The library had over 53,000 visitors during 2016 and approximately 6,000 card holders. Library members have access to over 22,000 books, nearly 1,000 magazines, 1,400 audiobooks, and 19,000 materials for children.

Usage of e-materials increased to 5,600 circulations from 4,400 in 2015. Overall circulation totaled 56,000, which was 10,000 fewer than in 2015.
