Looking Beyond Physical Library Buildings

Just to re-emphasise the point I have made before, a large proportion (27.3%) of book loans in Brent are not actually from a physical building at all.  UPDATE: I have tried to answer the comment below in a further post here.  Here are the non-building loans for the half year of 2014.

And here is the table with the actual figures:

Loans As %
Home Library 13.7%
Outreach 34.4%
Online Renewal 37.6%
Phone Renewal 9.1%
Ebook 5.2%
Total 100.0%

  1. Clearly e-book lending (presumably 1.4% of total loans) doesn't require a building. The other loan types surely relate to physical stock held in buildings. What point are you trying to make?
