Find Your Local Public Library

The information in this locator comes from the Public Libraries Survey for Fiscal Year 2009, which was conducted by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). 

A public library is an entity that is established under state enabling laws or regulations to serve a community, district, or region, and that provides at least the following:

  • An organized collection of printed or other library materials, or a combination thereof;
  • Paid staff;
  • An established schedule in which services of the staff are available to the public;
  • The facilities necessary to support such a collection, staff, and schedule; and
  • Is supported in whole or in part with public funds.
