It’s Kansas Public Library Survey season! Here are some resources to help get you started:


  • Survey runs from January 1 through February 5, 2024
  • Statistics are to cover calendar year 2023
  • Some answers have been pre-populated for your library within the online survey. Please be aware that since the data covers the entire 2023 calendar year and the survey opens the first day of the new year, some fields may not have your answer yet (for example Sunflower and Statewide data statistics). All final pre-populated statistics should be in your survey by mid-January.
  • George Williams has compiled circulation statistics for Next libraries: 2023 State Survey.xlsx.
