HOLT—The Holt-Delhi Library has seen significant growth because of its technology according to a recapping of 2011 at the Delhi Township Board meeting on Oct. 16. The library’s electronic book (e-book) use was the highlight of the year as it increased 238 percent from 2010, according to Head Librarian Jolee Hamlin. Hamlin said the mobility of e-books is the reason there was a large increase. “People have that expectation of being able to move around with their resources and the ease of use makes it nice,” said Hamlin.
