vol. 44, no. 1] CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES ANNUAL STATISTICS

CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES— ANNUAL STATISTICS

Annual report blanks were sent in June, 1948, to all California libra- ries except elementary public school and church libraries, and those which belong to private individuals and are not open to the public. Except when otherwise noted, statistics from the public library annual reports cover the period from July 1, 1947, to June 30, 1948. The school year 1947-48 is used as the time basis for school library reports. All reports are arranged under city and county by name of library, and counties are arranged alphabetically. To determine the county in which any place is located see the place index, page 8, which includes locations of branch and station libraries that are listed elsewhere only under the main library. For arrangements of libraries by subject or type refer to the annual Index Supplement to News Notes of California Lil)raries.

The Public Library Statistical Report, a standard form for gather- ing statistics on city, county and district libraries throughout the United States, was used as a basis for the mimeographed forms we distribute. Special forms on postal cards are used for annual reports from all other types of libraries.

Problems in regard to the collecting of library statistics center chiefly on three objects : currency of news, accuracy of information, and uniformity in methods of calculating totals. For accomplishment of these objects, directories, professional journals and printed items about Cali- fornia libraries (as gathered by a newspaper clipping agency) are checked constantly for facts in addition to those reported directly to the State Library each year by librarians. Chief librarians listed under names of libraries are those most recently reported in office up to the time of publishing these statistics.

In order that libraries will compile the totals they report in a uni- form manner, the following requirements and definitions have been applied :

The assessed valuation as given for each county does not include the value of intangible property, a third of the tax on which goes to the county. Figures are based on the annual statement, "Value of Property in and Indebtedness of Each County," California State Controller's Office.

Population statistics are given for counties and for all towns having munic- ipal libraries. Federal government popu- lation figures as of April 1, 1940, have been used, with revised population figures from special census reports indicated in footnotes.

County law libi-aries are all supported by income received from the $1.00 fee for filing papers in civil suits, so this inform- ation is not stated with statistics for each of them.

For the purpose of this publication, a municipal or city free library is one which has been legally established by city offi- cials, is supported by income from taxa- tion or other public funds, and has its

own trustees or other civil governing body.

An agency is any place, such as a cen- tral library, branch, station, or book automobile station, that, as an integral part of the public library system, distrib- utes books or otherwise renders library service to the public.

The total number of distributing agen- cies of a public library includes the cen- tral library as well as its branches and stations. To avoid duplication in count, then, the central office of a county library is neither counted nor listed as a separate community branch or station, regardless of the type of service it gives to the com- munity in which it is located.

A branch is an auxiliary library with separate quarters, a permanent basic col- lection of books, a permanent staff, and a regular schedule. It must meet all of these requirements.

A station is a place from which books ai"e distributed, but at which there is no permanent collection or library staff.

NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES

[Jan., 1949

A school which is served by a public library and has not a central library room meeting the conditions of a branch is a school station. It is counted just as one agency even though the books may be divided into a number of class-room col- lections.

While the federal report blank has centered interest on housing of agencies, this State Library is interested in type of service given in agencies (e.g. school and community). For our purpose a branch housed in a school but giving service entirely to the community is something very different from a school agency aiSli- ated for school service. The first is counted as a community agency, the sec- ond as a school agency.

A school branch or station which gives some community service is designated by (c) following the name of such distribut- ing agency of the county library. A com- munity branch or station which is merely located in a school building and not con- nected otherwise with the school library service is listed only as a community agency.

Municipal, district and high school li- traries which have affiliated with a county library for service are counted in total number of distributing agencies of that county library although listed sepa- rately from both its branches and sta- tions.

Branch library statistics are omitted under the names of various branches. They are included, however, in the gen- eral figures given under the central li- brary. For this reason, circulation and other statistics for their own books only and not for county service are shown, as a rule, by high school, municipal and other libraries which are afl[iliated with a county free library.

Total circulation is the count of books, pamphlets and periodicals lent for home use, from the central library or any agency, and the count of each renewal. A county or city library includes in its total ■circulation the count of supplementary books lent from schools for home use, but not those used in class rooms only. A county library also includes the circula- tin of county library books from all its agencies (including affiliated libraries, which should not include such count in their own annual report totals).

Circulation should not be estimated, but statistics should be kept of actual count according to an established system. Municipal libraries serving schools as regular stations of the central library will report the count of home use (loans for overnight or longer from the school or

class room collections) . "When loans are made in the name of a teacher of a school just as an individual borrower (rather than for a station) the count would, of course, be one for each book lent and one for each renewal recorded.

Inter-library loans between libraries which are an integral part of the same system (branches, stations and affiliated libraries) are not counted in total circu- lation, but rather in shipments from a central library. The circulation from such agencies is counted as noted above. State Library books borrowed are included in count of inter-library loans and also in circulation of the borrowing library.

A shipment from the central library is the lot of items sent to one agency at one time. One shipment might be two pack- ages or a dozen, and is really a count of the times books and other material have been sent to branches and stations. The total items shipped would be a count of the individual books or articles in the packages sent.

We consider a special request to be a request emanating from an individual borrower, for the central library to sup- ply, through its branch or station, a spe- cific book or material on one subject. In this regard community service only is considered, because practically all school requests seem to be special requests. A request from a custodian or borrower for "more detective stories" would not count as a special request. The count is to be made of actual number of requests re- ceived at the central library, because all the requests forwarded are worked over by the headquarters staff even if they can not all be filled. (Items sent to agencies in response to requests are counted under shipments.)

Janitors and building force, as well as untrained assistants in charge of com- munity branches and stations (of whom some are unpaid), are included in the total count of employees.
