Ocee Library Statistics


Here are some recent statistics for Ocee Library*:
  • Ocee checks out more children's items than any other Atlanta-Fulton Public Library branch
  • Ocee has 143,213 items on its shelves ( the second largest collection in the system)
  • Ocee's young adult collection is the largest in the system, our children's collection is the 2nd largest, and our adult collection is the 4th largest.
  • More than 40,000 items were checked out at Ocee in the month of September alone, and more than a fourth of those were checked out on our self-checkout machines
          (*these statistics exclude the Central Library and the Auburn Avenue Research Library)

A huge YAY!!! to our very excellent staff, and to all the volunteers who help put all those checked-out books back on the shelf.
