How Many Patrons Visited You Today?
Libraries across the nation use patron counters in many ways to better understand how patrons are using their facilities. Entrance Door Counters can help you understand which doors are the busiest and how many people are using specific doors. Traffic counters can help you better understand the busiest times (and rooms) in your building. Patron counters can help you prove that library USAGE has increased, even if circulation is down. Counters will help you better serve your patrons … and improve the efficiency of your staff and facilities.
We believe the best patron counters are those that are simple to buy, simple to install, simple to maintain, relatively accurate, reliable, and cost effective.
Why Should You Use A Patron Counter?
- Patron counters allow you to provide accurate visitor counts and help justify funding measures.
- Patron counters enable you to measure which entrances and areas are most active. Are patrons coming to the Children’s Library? Are they using the Computer Room, the Reference Room, Coffee Shop, Rest Rooms…
- Patron counters will help you decide which doors are the busiest and help guide the placement of advertisements, refreshment centers and informational kiosks.
- Patron counters will help you determine if you need to modify the hours and days of operation.
- Patron counters will help you ‘right’ staff to best serve your visitors, while keeping operating costs in control.

What Are Customers Saying
The Nevada County Library has used WeCountPeople.com's patron traffic workbook for the past five years. We only utilize the traffic count as our revenue statistics are not kept at the detailed level of the spreadsheet.
Our library staff members keep track of our daily count at the end of the day as part of our closing activities. The patron counter keeps a continual count for the occasional times the count is not retrieved so we never lose the count.
The worksheet has been a huge help keeping track of our patron count which we use to supply to the California State Library Survey annually. It's really easy to use and enter the day end counts to see where we are.
The note section is a great resource for reference notes and being able to change the multiplier to record accurate traffic is fantastic.
It's also nice to look back on the past five years to our progress. We have a bond initiative coming up in 2018 and this information will be extremely helpful to have.
–Debie Ogden, Nevada County Library
We use the people counter to monitor number of patrons entering our library via the front door. The more patrons, the more money we will receive in our budget. I like the people counter very much so far, but I wish the monitor screen was a little bigger, maybe twice the size. So it can be viewed easier, without glasses.–Alan Stetz, Henry Ford College
I manage a ceramics gallery in NYC and currently use a people counter device to track the number of visitors to each individual exhibition. This data is mainly used for grant purposes. The device we use is great because it is fairly low profile and blends in with the other hardware without taking away from the work on display. We currently have it installed within the path of entry to the gallery. –Brad Parsons, Jane Hartsook Gallery
