Public Library Budget Survey Report 2024

This 31-page report serves as a companion to LJ’s February 2024 article, “A Complex Landscape.” It includes a summary of findings from our latest public library budget survey, data tables segmented by population served, and some open-ended comments. The survey questions focus on operating, materials, and personnel budgets, as well as funding sources, spending trends, and statistics about circulation, service hours, and staffing.
