Library statistics

Our library circulation system is able to produce borrowing data for every student, for example, number of books borrowed and titles of books borrowed. Should you like such data, it can be provided upon request.

Students keep a tally of how many books they borrow per year with a borrowing incentive offered to each student. Certificates are earned for each 10, 20 and 40+ books that are borrowed.
