The FY2014 Survey will be available for submission in August 2014.
Information on the FY2013 Survey:
The questions, instructions, and definitions are available as PDFs below. There is also a guide to completing the survey.
In order for a principal public library to receive state aid they must electronically submit a locked Public Library Annual Statistical Report and Application for State Aid by November 15 of each year. All Connecticut public libraries are encouraged to complete the Statistical Survey. The Survey is the source for all information provided to the federal government (IMLS) regarding public libraries in Connecticut. The Survey is also the source of information for "Connecticut Public Libraries: A Statistical Profile", available on the Library Statistics page.
Go to the Bibliostat Collect website to complete your Public Library Annual Statistical Report and Application for Payment. You will need the LOGIN and PASSWORD provided by the State Data Coordinator in July.
Important Information on the State Aid Grant: The maintenance of effort requirement for State Aid has been waived again for this year (FY2014) and next year. There was no increase in funding for this year or next, however, so eligible public libraries will only receive the base grant amount of $1,200 each year.
If you have any further questions, please contact Tom Newman (860)757-6573, State Library Data Coordinator.
