Metropolitan Library System Releases 2009 Annual Report Online

To save on printing costs and to make it available to everyone instantly, the Metropolitan Library System has released its 2009 Annual Report online.

“The Annual Report can be accessed by visiting the MLS webpage at www.metrolibrary.org,” said Director of Marketing and Communications Kim Terry.  “Just click on Library Info at the top of the page, then click on MLS Annual Report and you’re good to go.”

The online report is fully animated and is in the form of a treasure hunt.  As viewers gather the necessary items to search for gold, a click of the mouse can bring up nuggets of information about MLS.  For instance, you will learn that over 660,000 Internet sessions were logged in by library customers last year on the systems public access computers in all 17 of the MLS locations. 

You can also discover figures relating to library programs, including the annual Summer at the Library events for Children and Teens, a combo that had its most successful year ever.

“We try every year to devise a winning format for the Annual Report,” Terry added, “so the citizens of Oklahoma County can see how we best use our budget to meet their entertainment and information needs, but we also want to present the Report to them in the most economical way possible.  I think our online 2009 Annual Report fulfills everyone’s needs and expectations.”
