Statistics of Public Libraries Serving Areas With at Least 25,000 Inhabitants, 1968.
Boaz, Ruth L.
The report is based upon two questionnaires administered by the Office of Education. The first questionnaire, sent to each State library agency, asked for a list of libraries in the State which served areas with at least 25,000 inhabitants. Forty-nine responding States and three outlying areas reported a total of 1,135 qualifying libraries. The second questionnaire, produced a total of 1,057 responses. Table 1 presents summary data for the 1,057 reporting libraries, by population size group; tables 2 and 3 present selected summary data for these libraries, by State; and tables 4 through 9 provide detailed information for each responding library, arranged alphabetically by State and city. All annual data included in this report cover the libraries' fiscal year that ended during the period January 1, 1968, through December 31, 1968. The variation in type of fiscal year used by public libraries is shown in appendix B. The questionnaires, definitions, and instructions are reproduced as appendixes C and D. (Author/NH)
