In a presentation to commissioners at their Feb. 26 meeting, Library District Director Kari May reported that 145,000 items had been checked out in 2013, a 6 percent increase over the previous year. May said that there has been a significant increase in the use of system's e-books and audio books.

For its Early Literacy program, May said the library district was awarded $5,600 from the state and an additional $3,000 per school district was awarded in the county to improve literacy among schoolchildren. This represents a 1000 percent increase for the agate schools, May reported. That district's entire budget last year was $300.
