Public Libraries Survey FY2014 is now open!

Through March 31, 2015, the South Dakota Public Libraries Survey is open. This is for South Dakota's public library directors to compile and upload their statistics for the fiscal year of 2014.

The annual South Dakota Public Libraries Survey collects statistics from South Dakota's public libraries using Web Link to counting opinions dot com. Data is submitted at the state level (see Data Digests) and at the federal level to the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

South Dakota Accredited Libraries

Public Library Accreditation is a voluntary process in South Dakota. Approximately one-third of our public libraries currently are accredited. Each year we add a few more to our rolls. Accreditation is for a 3-year period before one must reapply.

Libraries awarded in 2015 include Beresford Public Library, Canton Public Library, Cozard Memorial Library [Chamberlain], Custer County Library, Gregory Public Library, Hot Springs Public Library, Phoebe Apperson Hearst Library [Lead], Rawlins Municipal Library [Pierre], Piedmont Valley Library, Tripp County Library, Wall Community Library, and Yankton Community Library.

Data Digests are Published!

The 2014 Data Digests are now available!

Don't miss out on 2014's Data Digest Extras where we post additional statistics and infographics.
