Director’s Report
 
To borrow an oft quoted literary line, 2009 was the best of times and the worst of times for the Adams County Library System. With the economy in an historic downturn and unemployment rising to numbers not seen in 30 years, the Library hadnever been used so heavily in its 64 year history as in 2009.
 
Unfortunately, the economic down turn also has caused the budget situation for 2010 to be one of the bleakest in recent memory. A great deal of planning wascarried out in 2009 to meet this daunting challenge. Most especially, we thank thehundreds of Adams County residents who voiced their support for library funding inthis very tough year.
 
Circulation reached record numbers growing by 6% or 47,000 more items than2008. In the last few years, Audio/Visual circulation has accounted for the majorityof our circulation increases. Interestingly, book circulation continues to rise. Nationally, interest in books and reading are on the increase, giving solid justification for our continued emphasis on books. In 2009, more than 18,000 itemswere added to the collection.
 
Computer use continues to grow at the library. In 2009, almost 38,000 people usedInternet computers in the Library System. With the increase in circulation andcomputer use, it is clear that the Internet is not a threat to reading, but has actually promoted reading in our library system.
 
The Library System continues to partner with many community groups to bring avaried slate of programs to county residents. The Library System also participatedin the state
-
wide summer reading program and One Book Every Young Child program. These programs promote reading for pre
-
school and school age children.
 
With the budget reductions, the Library System Board had to make a number of very difficult decisions. Staff reductions, salary freezes, and programming cutswere made throughout the system. Even with these cuts, the library system boardstill had to make the painful decision to close the Arendtsville Library to meet thefunding crisis. By reallocating our available resources, the Library is able tocontinue to provide excellent service countywide in the coming years.
 
In closing, I would like to thank our County Commissioners for their continuedcommitment to the library. This support establishes a foundation for planning andimplementing services which potentially benefit every citizen of Adams County.
 
I would also like to thank the wonderful staff and volunteers for their dedicatedservice.
 
Respectfully submitted,
 
Rob Lesher, Director
