Special Survey of California Public Libraries, September 1978. Statewide Summary.
California State Library, Sacramento.
Results of a statewide survey of public libraries in California conducted in September, 1978, to gather information about the impact of Proposition 13, the Jarvis-Gann Tax Limitation Initiative, on library services are summarized. Data from the 141 libraries which responded to the survey are organized in groups of comparative statistics, juxtaposing figures for fiscal year 1977-78 with those for 1978-79 (the former are actual while the latter are estimates or approved budget figures). Public libraries are classified by type of jurisdiction--city, county on property tax, county on general fund, combination city-county, and district--and statistics for operating income (by sources), expenditures, hours of operation, and staffing are provided. Significant reduction in almost all areas is the basic finding. (JD)
