September 18 was "Read an eBook Day". Coker had 178 students who checked out 325 eBooks or Audio Books in one day. Way to go, Cubs!
During September 418 students came to the library as an individual (walk-ins). These students checked out books, used the computers or were working on research. This number does not reflect the class visits to the library for checkouts, lessons and research.
A total of 5,035 books were checked out of the library during September. That's a lot of books that have to go back on the shelves! We are always looking for volunteers (hint, hint)!
