* School library data collection was suspended indefinitely in 2012.  However 2008, 2010, and 2011 data are still available via the School Libraries page accessible by clicking on the school buses above.  The 2009 Impact Study is there too.

The Idaho Commission for Libraries annually releases Idaho Public Library Statistics, a compilation of statistical data from all Idaho public libraries.   Statistical data submitted by Idaho's public libraries are of great use to local, regional, state, and federal decision makers who have responsibility for ensuring that these vital, publicly funded institutions remain able to provide the very best programs and services for all the people of Idaho.  These library statistics are helpful when librarians and trustees want to:
  • Track their own library activity from year to year
  • Compare information from libraries of similar size or governance structure
  • Obtain statistics to support budget requests
  • Analyze the needs of their community
  • Plan how the library will serve the community in the future
