These Fiscal Year 2022 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: Statistical comparisons to FY 2021 are difficult due to post pandemic changes in the way our services are used. The construction project at Exploration Commons influenced the level of services at the Westminster Branch for several weeks of the fiscal year.
