The State Library of Oregon collects annual service measures and other statistics from all legally established public libraries in the state. Much of this data is then reported to the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to inform a national Public Library Survey data collection effort (see more below). The data reporting period matches the July 1 - June 30 state fiscal year each year.
The most recent 5 years of Oregon's public library survey data is available as Excel spreadsheets below, and if are looking for older survey data or this data in a different format, please contact us. We are working toward making this data more accessible and available in system designed for data analysis and visualization.
