Library Patrons in the News

Written on: July 30th, 2009 by: in News

CataloguingHere are two stories from current news that caught our eye.

A Pennsylvania libraries rather (*ahem) unusual response to an enthusiastic young patron was featured in the new “Nailed ’em!” anti-crime feature on Stephen Colbert’s Colbert Report.

And a happier story from Scotland about a record-breaking patron at the Stranraer Public Library. Louise Brown has been a member for more than 60 years and has borrowed and read more than 25,000 books in that time. She’s an avid romance novel fan who is currently facing the issue of having read nearly all of the books in the library! The Delaware Library Catalog’s most enthusiastic patrons, one of whom uses the Laurel library, the other being a Dover patron, have each checked out a little over 5,000 items each since they started using their libraries.
