When does 1 million plus 12 equal 2.4 million?  When you’re talking about your Huntsville Madison County Public Library System.  Over a million people visited our twelve locations in 2014 and they checked out 2.4 million items!  So, when people ask me if libraries are still relevant in this age of Google and e-books  I can tell you we’re busier than ever.
