Alabama Public Library Service Library Directory and 1990 Statistical Report.
Alabama Public Library Service, Montgomery.
The first section of this report is a directory which features 203 public libraries, 7 multi-county library systems, 12 single-county public library systems, and the multitype members of the Alabama Library Exchange (i.e., 8 public, 6 school, 8 academic, and 10 special libraries). Entries list the library's address and telephone number, names of a contact librarian and the chair of the board, hours open, and other information about the libraries. Library and contact librarian names are cross-referenced in a separate list. The remainder of the document is composed of data on individual libraries. Statistics by county cover (1) each library system's area population; (2) library personnel; (3) collections--i.e., books, periodicals, microforms, film, phonograph records, audiocassettes, videocassettes, art prints, filmstrips, and computer software; operating expenses; and state and federal funds received. The libraries are then ranked by number of staff, volumes, circulation, income, expenditures, local income per capita, and total income per capita. (BBM)
