Easy Access to Key Public Library Statistics

We’ve added a new section to the public library statistical tools on the LRS-Interactive section of our site. Now it is possible to access–with the click of a single button–a set of selected statistics which summarize the general health of a public library. These “bell-weather” statistics were chosen based on the findings of a thorough analysis of the latest Colorado public library statistics. It’s available at the bottom of the pages of each of the historical tools found at http://www.lrs.org/asp_public/historic, and on the 2005 data page (http://www.lrs.org/asp_public/stats05).
