Board Meeting Agendas

Minutes and director's report from monthly library board meetings

Prior to September of 2019 the director's report was included in the agenda.  To help streamline board meetings, the report is now included as a separate document in the meeting packet, more in keeping to standard board practices.  

Monthly statistics

Statistic are collected for the monthly board meeting and our annual report to the North Dakota State Library.  If you have any questions please contact the director.

  • Library statistics for the 3rd quarter of the year.

  • Due to Covid and related library closure and reduction of services, the 2020 statistics were horrible compared to previous years. All is not lost however, we did have a few significant increases. Overdrive usage increased 24%, Facebook hits increased 41%, and online catalog searches from outside the library increased 50%. Our wireless usage did show a 135% increase due software and hardware upgrades. The upgrades are providing better, more accurate reporting.
    Staff did receive proof of something we had long suspected, library programming is a driving force in library circulation. This is particularly significant regarding children's services. and an important consideration with the Summer Learning Program moving forward. Programs bring children in the door and gets them checking out and reading books.
