I have included the July figures as the new library did actually open the doors in July.  That month shows a comparatively modest change.  The following three months hsow the enormous difference a new facility can make, even though it was surrounded by building works up to the middle of September. 

The detailed figures for the graphs above are here:

Visits 2014 2015 % Growth
July               20,347               23,143 13.7%
August               19,293               31,003 60.7%
September               19,698               38,496 95.4%
October               20,254               39,492 95.0%

Issues 2014 2015 % Growth

August                 8,158               17,181 110.6%
