Sporting Events

More people visit libraries than all these sporting events. Combined!
Check out these stats library fans. In Wisconsin last year, our libraries scored 38.9 million visits, while tickets for football, basketball and hockey totaled 5.3 million, combined! In fact, Wisconsin libraries rank in the top ten nationally for visits, but we slipped to 19th in funding. Yet every tax dollar we do spend for library services is a home run, because it pays us back an average of four dollars in economic benefits to our communities. Book over to WisconsinLibraries.org to learn how you can help. Because supporting Wisconsin Libraries is a big win for everyone!
