As we head into a new year, the Blackstone Library is, as always, a hub of educational and cultural activity in Branford. In FY 2016, we had 10,109 registered cardholders, loaned 228,660 items, and answered 74,102 questions. Our summer reading program continues to have strong participation with over 900 students from Branford schools completing the program this year. The library is always active with an average of over 590 visitors per day.
The Community Foundation of Greater New Haven recently included the Blackstone Library in a post featuring public libraries on their website. More than ever, there is so much to experience, learn and do at the library!
