Pueblo Library usage way up

The Pueblo Library District reports a huge increase in visitors in the first two months of 2010.  Compared with last year, visits are up 24 percent. 

Books and other items checked out have increased by a whopping 38.5 percent when compared with the first two months of 2009.  The sour economy probably plays a part, since most items are free for check out.  But 2009 was also a record year.

Also, the Pueblo West library was enlarged last year and a satellite library outlet opened at the new YMCA.

Participation at library events also drastically increased -- up by 73 percent for the first two months of the year.
