These Fiscal Year 2021 statistics provide a snapshot of the services that CCPL provides. If you need more information beyond what is provided here, please feel free to contact us.

Please note that these are still unprecedented times. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we view our statistics. You will notice that most of our numbers have decreased by quite a bit due to the disruption of our services that began on March 13, 2020. The construction project at Exploration Commons has also influenced the level of services at the Westminster Branch for 11 months of the fiscal year.
