The information found on this page is from the Texas Public Libraries Annual Report 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).
