The West Chester location of the MidPointe Library System broke its previous record for checkouts in a month this past June.
The local library had 136,512 items checked out last month, trumping its old record set in July of 2008 by more than 4,000 checkouts.
“We are very happy with this number. It tells us that our community values this library and the important educational and entertainment resources we provide,” said Steve Mayhugh, MidPointe Library branch manager in West Chester.
According to library officials, MidPointe Library West Chester experiences well more than a million checkouts each year. However, summertime activities such as storytimes and summer reading programs create an increase to the number of visitors and checkouts.
