2014-2015 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 2014-2015 survey ran from July 15 to September 15 2015. While all 80 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 may be entered as "N/A," "0" or "-1".
