Norm Harley’s letter “Dismal Survey” (Gazette, Sept. 28) makes a number of incorrect assertions about St. Albert Public Library that I would like to correct. First, most St. Albert residents use the library, not less than one per cent. In a random survey done in 2015 for the Facility Predictive Model, 73 per cent of residents had used the library in the past 12 months. With over 330,000 in-person visits last year, the library is one of the most-heavily used city facilities. And in terms of loans per capita, St. Albert Public Library is the busiest public library in Alberta.
