It contributes to the system's overall collection and services, which now total more than 8.2 million books and serial volumes, more than 50,000 E-Books, more than 38,000 audio files, and more than 68,000 video files. Over 200,000 people have registered as borrowers with the library system, which has 26 sites and circulates more than 3.7 million items each year.
