Today a "visit" to the library does not have to mean walking into the door of the neighborhood branch. In many public library systems the majority of visits are virtual, that is, they take place on the internet, which allows patrons to access many library materials online. This measure tracks the number of individuals who physically visit one of the 34 branches in the library system, or visit the library’s website. Individuals are counted via door counters at the library buildings, and via web visits.
