The Illinois State Library has compiled statistical and other information about the public libraries in the state. The first section lists each library alphabetically, gives the name of the head librarian, county and type of library, and lists statistics on population, fees, hours, transactions, staff, book and non-book resources, assessed valuation, tax rate, funding, wages, materials and operating expenditures. Another section contains a directory of libraries which provides the librarian's name, library address, board president, the date the library was built, and the library system to which it belongs. A page is devoted to each of the state's 18 library systems, and includes system headquarters, address and phone number; headquarters library; names of director and president; and a list of libraries in the system. Other sections include lists of libraries by county, public libraries not in any system, association and endowed libraries, as well as an index of librarians, libraries, and areas served. A list of key personnel of the state library and their phone numbers is also provided. (LS)
