The definitive guide to public library spending and spending priorities for 2012. Spending is reported by size of the patron population served by public libraries: fewer than 10,000; 10,000-25,000; 25,000-50,000; 50,000-100,000; and patron populations over 100,000. Total budgets by categories are reported, as well as past budget experience and forecast budgets for 2012. Categories of spending are broken down by library size and include all major expenditures: staff, IT, print and electronic collections, operations and more. An indispensible and brand new resource for strategic planning and budget proposals and presentations.
