Fewer books borrowed as library visits increase

posted 16th September 2005
Initial figures published by the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) show a 4.3% increase in visits to UK public libraries in 2003-04 - up to almost 337 million visits but a 6.5% decline in active borrowers for the same period. Book borrowing rates fell 5.5% to 341 million in 2003-04.

The data suggests an increase in users using libraries for non-traditional reasons, such as internet use, emailing sessions and audio borrowing. In 2003-04, book stocks decreased by 3.7 million (3.3%) to 110.5 million books, but audio, visual, electronic and other stocks increased by 2.2% to 9.0 million. At the same time, book additions remained stable, but the survey shows a 6.3% increase in stocks other than books.

Local authorities spent a total of 1,061.8 million on the provision of library services in the UK. Income from fines, fees and other sources totalled 111.2 million, resulting in an 8.2% increase in overall net expenditure to 950.5 million in 2003-04 up by 72.3 million on 2002-03.
