2011-2012 Statistical Report of North Carolina Public Libraries

Each annual statistical report provides an overview of the staff, finances, collections, services, usage, and automation in North Carolina's public libraries. To facilitate comparisons, libraries are arranged by type (county, regional or municipal) and within type, by population of the legal service area. The legal service population figures are taken from the Population Estimates and Projections published by the North Carolina Office of State Budget and Management.

The deadline for submission for the 2011-2012 statistical report was September 30, 2012. While all 77 public library systems returned their annual report form, not all items on each form were filled out. Data element fields that were left blank or were reported as N/A are generally entered as "N/A."
