For items relating to Number of Programs and Attendance:

Add for Program Count: Count as one program an activity organized by library staff which is completed by individuals on a self-paced schedule. Such activities may be referred to as passive programs. Example: A summer readng program where participants receive recognition for reading a certain number of minutes per week.

Add for Attendance Count: Count individuals that register or participate in a passive program, an activity organized by library staff but which is self-paced. Example: Two people register to committ to reading two hours a week. One checks in each week; the other checked in just once. The count is two.
