Norfolk's biggest library has accidentally revealed the latest chapter in its success story - it is the best in Britain.
Norwich Millennium Library issued 950,384 books last year, more than any other library in the country, according to statistics from the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA).
It is also the 6th most visited library in the country.
The figures were to be released in due course, but the library accidentally shared the results early on Facebook.
