Library Statistics

The MBLC collects and analyzes financial, demographic, staffing, and service data from public libraries in Massachusetts. Use the table below to sort and filter by year or report type.

Data for most reports goes back to 2006. For reports from 2010 on, you can download data as an Excel spreadsheet.

If you're a public library director, you can create your own reports (username and password required) with the Reports Manager section of LibPAS.
