National Book Count to go in February 2012

The second annual National Book Count sponsored by the National Reading Campaign working group is scheduled to go in February 2012. It was originally scheduled for January, but a last minute hiccup connected to retail eBook sales forced a change.

CULC/CBUC’s participation is expanding with many member institutions signing on for 2012 who were not part of the 2011 count. So far these members have said YES:
Toronto; Vaughan; Oshawa; Winnipeg; Windsor; Saskatoon; Kitchener; Calgary; Richmond; GVPL; Burlington; Regina; Surrey; Coquitlam; Thunder Bay; Markham; Whitby; Burnaby; London; Vancouver

The 2011 National Book Count was a first-time benchmark set and was made up of large public library circulation, plus retail sales in both French and English book retailers. More than 2.5 million were bought or borrowed in mid-January 2011.
