Total number of items checked out in April = 1,949
Total number of items returned in April = 2,008
Total number of items put on hold in April = 168

I stumbled across a report that shows which patron have checked out the most books - which of course I won't post here for obvious reasons - but the list reads like a roster of my lunchtime regulars.  One teacher has checked out 232 items over the last year and the one student has checked out 94 items in the last year.
