CALIFORNIA  LIBRARIES— ANNUAL  STATISTICS 

Annual  report  blanks  were  sent  in  June,  1948,  to  all  California  libra- 
ries except  elementary  public  school  and  church  libraries,  and  those 
which  belong  to  private  individuals  and  are  not  open  to  the  public. 
Except  when  otherwise  noted,  statistics  from  the  public  library  annual 
reports  cover  the  period  from  July  1,  1947,  to  June  30,  1948.  The  school 
year  1947-48  is  used  as  the  time  basis  for  school  library  reports.  All 
reports  are  arranged  under  city  and  county  by  name  of  library,  and 
counties  are  arranged  alphabetically.  To  determine  the  county  in  which 
any  place  is  located  see  the  place  index,  page  8,  which  includes  locations 
of  branch  and  station  libraries  that  are  listed  elsewhere  only  under  the 
main  library.  For  arrangements  of  libraries  by  subject  or  type  refer  to 
the  annual  Index  Supplement  to  News  Notes  of  California  Lil)raries. 

The  Public  Library  Statistical  Report,  a  standard  form  for  gather- 
ing statistics  on  city,  county  and  district  libraries  throughout  the  United 
States,  was  used  as  a  basis  for  the  mimeographed  forms  we  distribute. 
Special  forms  on  postal  cards  are  used  for  annual  reports  from  all  other 
types  of  libraries. 

Problems  in  regard  to  the  collecting  of  library  statistics  center 
chiefly  on  three  objects :  currency  of  news,  accuracy  of  information,  and 
uniformity  in  methods  of  calculating  totals.  For  accomplishment  of  these 
objects,  directories,  professional  journals  and  printed  items  about  Cali- 
fornia libraries  (as  gathered  by  a  newspaper  clipping  agency)  are 
checked  constantly  for  facts  in  addition  to  those  reported  directly  to  the 
State  Library  each  year  by  librarians.  Chief  librarians  listed  under  names 
of  libraries  are  those  most  recently  reported  in  office  up  to  the  time  of 
publishing  these  statistics. 

In  order  that  libraries  will  compile  the  totals  they  report  in  a  uni- 
form manner,  the  following  requirements  and  definitions  have  been 
applied : 


The  assessed  valuation  as  given  for 
each  county  does  not  include  the  value  of 
intangible  property,  a  third  of  the  tax 
on  which  goes  to  the  county.  Figures  are 
based  on  the  annual  statement,  "Value  of 
Property  in  and  Indebtedness  of  Each 
County,"  California  State  Controller's 
Office. 

Population  statistics  are  given  for 
counties  and  for  all  towns  having  munic- 
ipal libraries.  Federal  government  popu- 
lation figures  as  of  April  1,  1940,  have 
been  used,  with  revised  population  figures 
from  special  census  reports  indicated  in 
footnotes. 

County  law  libi-aries  are  all  supported 
by  income  received  from  the  $1.00  fee  for 
filing  papers  in  civil  suits,  so  this  inform- 
ation is  not  stated  with  statistics  for  each 
of  them. 

For  the  purpose  of  this  publication,  a 
municipal  or  city  free  library  is  one  which 
has  been  legally  established  by  city  offi- 
cials, is  supported  by  income  from  taxa- 
tion or  other  public  funds,  and  has  its 


own  trustees  or  other  civil  governing 
body. 

An  agency  is  any  place,  such  as  a  cen- 
tral library,  branch,  station,  or  book 
automobile  station,  that,  as  an  integral 
part  of  the  public  library  system,  distrib- 
utes books  or  otherwise  renders  library 
service  to  the  public. 

The  total  number  of  distributing  agen- 
cies of  a  public  library  includes  the  cen- 
tral library  as  well  as  its  branches  and 
stations.  To  avoid  duplication  in  count, 
then,  the  central  office  of  a  county  library 
is  neither  counted  nor  listed  as  a  separate 
community  branch  or  station,  regardless 
of  the  type  of  service  it  gives  to  the  com- 
munity in  which  it  is  located. 

A  branch  is  an  auxiliary  library  with 
separate  quarters,  a  permanent  basic  col- 
lection of  books,  a  permanent  staff,  and  a 
regular  schedule.  It  must  meet  all  of  these 
requirements. 

A  station  is  a  place  from  which  books 
ai"e  distributed,  but  at  which  there  is  no 
permanent  collection  or  library  staff.

NEWS   NOTES   OF    CALIFORNIA   LIBRARIES 


[Jan.,  1949 


A  school  which  is  served  by  a  public 
library  and  has  not  a  central  library 
room  meeting  the  conditions  of  a  branch 
is  a  school  station.  It  is  counted  just  as 
one  agency  even  though  the  books  may  be 
divided  into  a  number  of  class-room  col- 
lections. 

While  the  federal  report  blank  has 
centered  interest  on  housing  of  agencies, 
this  State  Library  is  interested  in  type  of 
service  given  in  agencies  (e.g.  school  and 
community).  For  our  purpose  a  branch 
housed  in  a  school  but  giving  service 
entirely  to  the  community  is  something 
very  different  from  a  school  agency  aiSli- 
ated  for  school  service.  The  first  is 
counted  as  a  community  agency,  the  sec- 
ond as  a  school  agency. 

A  school  branch  or  station  which  gives 
some  community  service  is  designated  by 
(c)  following  the  name  of  such  distribut- 
ing agency  of  the  county  library.  A  com- 
munity branch  or  station  which  is  merely 
located  in  a  school  building  and  not  con- 
nected otherwise  with  the  school  library 
service  is  listed  only  as  a  community 
agency. 

Municipal,  district  and  high  school  li- 
traries  which  have  affiliated  with  a 
county  library  for  service  are  counted  in 
total  number  of  distributing  agencies  of 
that  county  library  although  listed  sepa- 
rately from  both  its  branches  and  sta- 
tions. 

Branch  library  statistics  are  omitted 
under  the  names  of  various  branches. 
They  are  included,  however,  in  the  gen- 
eral figures  given  under  the  central  li- 
brary. For  this  reason,  circulation  and 
other  statistics  for  their  own  books  only 
and  not  for  county  service  are  shown,  as 
a  rule,  by  high  school,  municipal  and 
other  libraries  which  are  afl[iliated  with 
a  county  free  library. 

Total  circulation  is  the  count  of  books, 
pamphlets  and  periodicals  lent  for  home 
use,  from  the  central  library  or  any 
agency,  and  the  count  of  each  renewal.  A 
county  or  city  library  includes  in  its  total 
■circulation  the  count  of  supplementary 
books  lent  from  schools  for  home  use,  but 
not  those  used  in  class  rooms  only.  A 
county  library  also  includes  the  circula- 
tin  of  county  library  books  from  all  its 
agencies  (including  affiliated  libraries, 
which  should  not  include  such  count  in 
their  own  annual  report  totals). 

Circulation  should  not  be  estimated, 
but  statistics  should  be  kept  of  actual 
count  according  to  an  established  system. 
Municipal  libraries  serving  schools  as 
regular  stations  of  the  central  library  will 
report  the  count  of  home  use  (loans  for 
overnight  or  longer  from  the  school  or 


class  room  collections) .  "When  loans  are 
made  in  the  name  of  a  teacher  of  a  school 
just  as  an  individual  borrower  (rather 
than  for  a  station)  the  count  would,  of 
course,  be  one  for  each  book  lent  and  one 
for  each  renewal  recorded. 

Inter-library  loans  between  libraries 
which  are  an  integral  part  of  the  same 
system  (branches,  stations  and  affiliated 
libraries)  are  not  counted  in  total  circu- 
lation, but  rather  in  shipments  from  a 
central  library.  The  circulation  from  such 
agencies  is  counted  as  noted  above.  State 
Library  books  borrowed  are  included  in 
count  of  inter-library  loans  and  also  in 
circulation  of  the  borrowing  library. 

A  shipment  from  the  central  library  is 
the  lot  of  items  sent  to  one  agency  at  one 
time.  One  shipment  might  be  two  pack- 
ages or  a  dozen,  and  is  really  a  count  of 
the  times  books  and  other  material  have 
been  sent  to  branches  and  stations.  The 
total  items  shipped  would  be  a  count  of 
the  individual  books  or  articles  in  the 
packages  sent. 

We  consider  a  special  request  to  be  a 
request  emanating  from  an  individual 
borrower,  for  the  central  library  to  sup- 
ply, through  its  branch  or  station,  a  spe- 
cific book  or  material  on  one  subject.  In 
this  regard  community  service  only  is 
considered,  because  practically  all  school 
requests  seem  to  be  special  requests.  A 
request  from  a  custodian  or  borrower  for 
"more  detective  stories"  would  not  count 
as  a  special  request.  The  count  is  to  be 
made  of  actual  number  of  requests  re- 
ceived at  the  central  library,  because  all 
the  requests  forwarded  are  worked  over 
by  the  headquarters  staff  even  if  they  can 
not  all  be  filled.  (Items  sent  to  agencies 
in  response  to  requests  are  counted  under 
shipments.) 

Janitors  and  building  force,  as  well  as 
untrained  assistants  in  charge  of  com- 
munity branches  and  stations  (of  whom 
some  are  unpaid),  are  included  in  the 
total  count  of  employees.

proximately  1850.  and  also  a  fine  collec- 
tion of  Mexican  government  documents. 

The  periods  of  the  Renaissance  and 
Reformation  are  represented  by  a  large 
number  of  books  on  Latin  and  in  German 
written  by  Luther  and  his  contempora- 
ries. 

There  are  about  30,000  English  pam- 
phlets representing  the  years  1640  to 
1660  particularly  well,  with  others  filling 
in  the  period  from  1660  to  1690.  An  addi- 
tional 4000  English  pamphlets  printed  in 
the  18th  century  and  another  10,000  in

there  are  copies  of  the  first  four  editions 
of  the  Shakespeare  folios  and  many  Eng- 
lish plays  printed  in  the  17th,  18th  and
