CNN will be airing an  piece on how libraries have become a great source of accurate financial information on Feb. 28.  Also, CNN may do a second piece so ALA is soliciting your stories about increases in financial material being checked out, attendance at library financial seminars, etc. 

CNN has collected usage information from New York area libraries and is trying to get more data that would indicate a national trend of more financial resources being used in libraries across the country.

Has your library experienced an increase in the past year or so on financial material being checked out/free financial seminar attendance, etc.?  If so by how much? If you have the information close at hand, please share it with:
