Iowa City library to exceed 1.5 million in circulation

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- The Iowa City Public Library is set to break a record.

Over the next few days, the library says it will exceed 1.5 million in total circulation. The only other library to achieve this milestone is the Des Moines Public Library, with a combined circulation between its main library and five branches. The Iowa City library is the busiest single library location in the state.

The library saw a 5.4 percent increase in circulation through the first three quarters of 2009. Library employees believe the economy is playing a major role in driving library usage.

The new Iowa City Library opened five years ago this month.
