Boca Raton Public Library Plans for Its Millionth Checkout

Boca Raton Public Library Plans For Its Millionth Checkout September 28, 2018

Boca Raton, FL – On Friday, September 28, 2018, Boca Raton Public Library will reach one million checkouts in one year! This exciting milestone will be celebrated by showering one lucky patron with confetti, and a leaf will be placed on the Giving Tree engraved with their name to commemorate the event. In addition, all patrons visiting the library and borrowing more than five items that day will receive a free stylus pen and DVD coupon.

“With over 800,000 items to borrow, the library has something for everyone,” notes Ellen Randolph, Acting Manager of Library Services. “We have print and digital books and magazines; downloadable and streaming audiobooks, music, movies, and TV shows; and an entire digital library of online learning and research tools. You can even borrow a cake pan, American Girl Doll, or backpacks filled with literacy or STEM materials. The library team looks forward to celebrating this milestone with the community!”

Providing patrons with a robust collection of popular materials, educational resources and digital library offerings has contributed to a 29% increase in library checkouts over the previous fiscal year. The library serves over 525,000 visitors yearly at its two locations and has more than 27,000 active cardholders. Visit the Boca Raton Public Library in person or online at to discover all the programs, classes and resources the library has to offer.
