Marshall Public Library

New numbers from the Idaho Commission for Libraries are painting a busy picture for the Marshall Public Library. In the commission’s report “Idaho Public Library Statistics” for Fiscal Year 2015, the figures show that 79 percent of Pocatello’s population has a library card, while the statewide average is 60%. Of the top ten libraries in the state by population, the report has the Marshall Public Library at number one. “I’m happy to be part of a community that values the many services provided by the Marshall Public Library,” said Director Eric Suess. “The library is a hub of activity beyond just books. There are classes, programs, and services that touch on just about every topic of interest.” Also included in the figures was the number of programs offered by the library. In FY 2015, the library offered nearly 1,100 programs that were attended by just over 26,000 people for an average attendance of 23.8 people per program. Total attendance at the library for the year was roughly 330,000.
