We are serving a population of 4.000 permannent residents and a population of about 1.000 temporary residents who have holiday homes in our city. Since we are located right on the seaside our busy season is summer, when many turists visit our library to use the Internet or to search information about our town. During the school year we are a hub to all the school pupils of our town as well as to all the adult population of Novigrad where they all come to read and socialize in a welcoming environement of their library. Our library is free of charge to all permanent residents. Our patrons have 10 computers availabele for use which are hooked up to a central printer/copier/scanner. We provide free Internet access to all our patrons. Currently we have about 1.000 regular patrons, half of which are children. The library has more than 18.000 visits per year and more than 7.000 log-ins to the computers. We currently held about 20.000 books and DVDs. Our yearly acquisition is about 1.000 units (including books and DVDs). We currently employ 2,5 librarians (including the director).
