When Lisa Ragland of Glenmont borrowed some "Goosebumps" books for one of her daughters, she got some goose bumps of her own: Workers at the East Columbia Branch Library congratulated her for checking out the 3-millionth item from the county library system this year.
"It feels great," she said after library workers informed her and her 5-year-old daughter Ellen of their part in the library system's milestone.
"I'm very excited," said Bonnie Danaker, assistant circulation supervisor, who waited on Mrs. Ragland. "She is one of our regulars."
To mark the occasion, Mrs. Ragland's picture was taken.
She also got a letter informing her that a book will be donated to the library in her honor and that she can select what type of book it will be.
