Annual Public Library Survey Opens

Starting today public library directors all over Colorado will be filling out their 2006 Public Library Annual Reports. Also known as the public library survey, the annual report is mandated by law and gathers data about Colorado public libraries for inclusion in national (NCES) and state (LRS) statistics. These statistics provide library professionals with important information for planning, evaluating, and budgeting. The report deadline is March 16, 2007.
