Here's something that many University Place residents already knew: the library is one of the busiest in the state.
Patch user Steve pointed out the website WA-List.com, which compiles lists about "anything and everything Washington State." One of the lists is busiest library.
According to their number-crunchers - who pulled the statistics for 349 public library locations on Washington, sorted them by check out volume, and listed the top 30 - the University Place Library came in at No. 19.
Other branches of the Pierce County Library System that made the list include South Hill (No. 6), Gig Harbor (No. 11) and Parkland-Spanaway (No. 26).
The busiest library in the state is the Seattle Public Library's Central branch.
Kudos the staff at the UP Library, who have kept up with the demand even before the branch moved into its Town Center location a year ago.
