Public Library Annual Report

Information on completing the 2017 Annual Report to the State Library was e-mailed to all public library directors recently.  The Annual Report is critical for state and national data gathering on public libraries.

Libraries will again be using an Excel report form (an .xlsx file) which you will fill out and then send back to me.  See the Annual Report web-page for:

  • A printable list of the questions on the report form
  • An instruction sheet
  • The report form itself (to download when you are ready to complete it)

There almost no changes from last year.

The firm DEADLINE for submission is 4 P.M. on November 15, 2017.  Though we expect no funding for State Aid this year, public libraries are still required, by statute CGS Sec. 11-25 (a), to submit an Annual Report.

Please contact Tom Newman, ( with any questions.  Thanks in advance to all those who will be assisting with the annual report.
