According to new figures released by the Idaho Commission for Libraries, Fiscal Year 2016 was a busy one for the Marshall Public Library.


In the Commission’s report, “Idaho Public Library Statistics,” the numbers show that 83 percent of Pocatello residents have a library card from the Marshall Public Library, up 4 percent from Fiscal Year 2015’s 79 percent. Statewide 61 percent of eligible Idahoans have an active library card. Of the top ten libraries across the Gem State by population, the Marshall Public Library was second behind the East Bonner County District based in Sandpoint.


“Pocatello values the services that we provide at the Marshall Public Library,” said Eric Suess, Marsall Public Library Director. “Today’s libraries are much more than just a collection of books. We have classes, activities, and programs that appeal to all different people and their interests.”


The report also details programs offered, circulation, and attendance at the libraries. Total attendance for the year checked in at 341,306.


“Our attendance per capita was 6.27,” Suess explained. “This means that on average, every resident in Pocatello visited the Marshall Public Library 6 times in Fiscal Year 2016.”
