Preparing for the 2021 Texas Public Libraries Annual Report

Every year Texas public library directors must submit the Texas Public Libraries Annual Report to be eligible for library accreditation as well as participate in many agency financial and resource opportunities. Library Data Coordinator Valicia Greenwood provides answers to accreditation questions, as well as reporting on library finances, collection, programs, service hours and technology. On the 2021 report, questions have been added for library programs, and for the library’s response during the ongoing pandemic. This is a good introduction to the process for those doing the Annual Report for the first time and a timely review for experienced directors.
