Our 2019-2020 statistics were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our campus went fully remote teaching after March 13, 2020 and all library locations were closed from March 17, 2020 through the end of the fiscal year. All services that could be provided remotely continued during this time period. The suspension of in-person services impacted a variety of our statistics including circulation, ILL, presentations to groups, other operating expenditures, etc.
