Portland Leader > News > New library planned for White House

Portland Leader > News > New library planned for White House | Tennessee Libraries | Scoop.it

"As it celebrates a quarter century of existence, the White House Inn Library has become a victim of its own success.

 

The number of patrons with library cards has more than quintupled since the first year after the library’s opening. In fact, the total number of registered borrowers — 10,163 — is almost equal to the town’s total population of 10,255.

 

Over the years, the library’s collection of books has nearly quintupled, too — from 5,500 volumes to 25,250 — while the library’s size has not been expanded."
