Alabama Public Library Service. Library Directory and 1988 Statistical Report.
Alabama Public Library Service, Montgomery.
The library directory provides separate listings for: (1) individual public libraries, which are listed alphabetically by town or city and include the name of the county; (2) multi-county public library systems, i.e., eight regional libraries that are listed by the library name; (3) single county public library systems, i.e., 13 public libraries that are listed alphabetically by name; and (4) multitype library systems, i.e., two regional systems with the names of the public libraries, college and university libraries, school system libraries, and special libraries included in the system. Listings include the name, address, and telephone number of the individual or regional library; the names of the librarian and board chair; total hours open; and schedule of hours open. This information is also provided for the central libraries in the multitype library system listing, but not for the member libraries. A name index provides cross references by name of individual library to its location in the appropriate list. The statistical report for FY 1988, which makes up the greater part of this document, presents statistics for individual public libraries, which are listed by library system or as independent libraries. The final section presents rankings of the libraries by staff, volumes, circulation, income, expenditures, local income per capita, and total income per capita. (BBM)
