Some statistics...

We're inching ever closer to 20,000 checkouts on Listen Up! Vermont since we began last March. What an accomplishment! We'll celebrate again when we hit 25,000 checkouts... look for information on that to come.

In the meantime, we're at 18,370 checkouts, with June 2009 our busiest month yet, at 1,684 checkouts.
