The information found on these pages is from the Annual Reports submitted by public libraries in Texas. The statistics reflect each library's local fiscal year, defined as the fiscal year which includes January 1st. The membership year noted in the statistics refers to the State Fiscal Year. "Member" indicates that the library met the criteria for accreditation in the Texas Library System, individually or as part of a federated library system (FLS).

Note that the contact information found in the Texas Public Library Local Statistics prior to 2012, was submitted with the local fiscal year annual report and is not current.  For current contact information, refer to the Current Texas Public Library Directory.

We gratefully acknowledge the efforts made by all public librarians in their cooperation in collecting and reporting the data.
