Local Weather (Ontonagon, MI)

Using statewide library data from the previous fiscal year, we ran a report to compare the Ontonagon Township Library to similar Michigan libraries. For this report, we looked at all libraries with a service population of 3,999 or less, and a total operating income between $25,000 and $100,000.

 

Using these criteria, we found that there were 41 libraries in Michigan that serve similarly small populations on a budget comparable to ours.

 

Here is how OTL stacked up against the other 40...

 

 

 

  • The Ontonagon Township Library was #5 in physical audio units on-hand (e.g., music CDs and audiobooks) with 748 items.

 

  • The Ontonagon Township Library was #4 in total circulation with 28,116 items circulated.

 

  • The Ontonagon Township Library was #4 in items loaned to other libraries with 1,280 items sent out on interlibrary loan.

 

  • The Ontonagon Township Library was #3 in total number of print materials on hand with 30,944 books and periodicals available.

 

  • The Ontonagon Township Library was #2 in Children’s Materials circulated with 8,063 items checked out from juvenile, board book, and easy reader categories.

 

  • The Ontonagon Township Library was #2 in total collection size with 37,793 items available.

 

  • And the Ontonagon Township Library was #2 in total library visits, with an estimated 22,776 in-person instances of library use. (That’s almost 13 people for every hour we were open!)
