The Central Library has been keeping attendance records since its doors first opened in 1927, and the 2007 fiscal year--July 1, 2006 through June 30, 2007--marks the first on record since 1938 that the Central Library has exceeded one million annual visits. (There were 1,018,025 visits altogether.) Louis Baker of Philadelphia's Mayfair neighborhood made the lucky millionth passage through the Library's turnstile. Read all about it here .
