National Public Library Chart and Report Creators
The Excel file (3.8 MB) available above:
- Was originally made for Connecticut public libraries but may be used by any public library in the United States.
- Creates charts that compare your library to libraries in your state and the nation, including just those who have a similar population.
- Requires absolutely no knowledge of Excel.
- Uses the latest data (2015) available from the Public Library Survey released by the Institute of Museum and Library Services in the fall of 2017.
- Will take some time to download.
- Will be updated with the newer data as soon as it becomes available (usually each year in the fall).
- Is still in a work in progress, so please contact Tom Newman with questions, comments, corrections.
