We Do the Math

Lending and borrowing. Libraries try to balance the equation. We want to borrow about the same number of titles as we lend throughout the year. That’s just being neighborly.

A sampling of who requested items so far this morning from the Alma Public Library? Holmen, Campbell, West Salem, Bangor, Norwalk, Viroqua, Wilton, Black River Falls, La Crosse, Necedah, and Coon Valley. That’s 14 library users from 11 different libraries that will be receiving something from our Alma collection this week. Sharing; it’s what libraries do, and so much more!
