At the CRRL, we're checking out more books (1.2 million more than last year), answering close to a million reference questions, and experiencing a 50 percent increase in computer bookings. People are making a beeline to our libraries to seek and apply for jobs online, to use computers to connect with friends and family, to check out books for help with homework assignments, and to get help filing taxes.
