Every year the Washington State Library publishes statistics from public libraries in the state. These statistics provide information on library income, expenses, services, service populations, library square footage and much more. I thought this document might help citizens understand more about how libraries function as well as provide comparisons of our library district and others in Skagit county and around the state. From this information I created a smaller spreadsheet that pulled together some of this information in a more manageable sized document. You can find the 2014 Annual Statistics at http://www.sos.wa.gov/_assets/library/libraries/libDev/2014stats.pdf.
