State of America's Libraries Report Archives

The State of America's Libraries Report is issued annually in conjunction with National Library Week (usually the second week in April).  Since 2006, the American Library Association’s Public Awareness Office, in coordination with other ALA units, has prepared the report to inform the public about important trends and key issues facing America's libraries.
