State Library Services collects program statistics and financial data from public libraries. Statistical information is used by public libraries to plan and implement services that respond to community needs.

Public Library Statistics

Minnesota law requires public libraries to submit annual reports to the Minnesota Department of Education. Annual report data is used to compare activities over time at a single library or between groups of libraries. To get details about the type of information collected, request a user account, or locate data submitted prior to 2007, please contact State Library Services.
