More Information about the Ontario Public Libraries Annual Survey Week

Statistical information is gathered and administered by the Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries, which requires all public libraries in the province to measure their activities during a typical week in October or November. The gathered data is vital in providing a representative snapshot into a library’s daily use, and helps identify usage trends and opportunities for growth or new initiatives.

Similar statistics will be recorded by other public libraries across the province this season as part of Ontario Public Libraries Annual Survey Week, which helps create a picture of public library usage locally and throughout Ontario. The measures are similar from year-to-year and the same for all public libraries, allowing for a comparison of performance measures and overall use of the library’s materials, resources, and services over time, and with other libraries across Ontario.
