CHATHAM, Ill. (WICS/WRSP) -- $2 million - that's how much library cardholders in Chatham saved in just one year.
The Chatham Area Public Library directors said they even had to double check the amount.
They said the number comes from a yearly report from the Chatham library system.
It's not just books the library offers, but movies, CD's and even puzzles.
The Chatham library said the savings add up fast!
"It's wonderful - it's what we're here for. That's what all libraries are here for. I'm sure there's big numbers in all the libraries in the area that are all doing these wonderful things, but we're just so happy to see people coming through our doors are utilizing us," Library Director Amy Byers said.
There are over 8,000 library cardholders in Chatham.
