The 2022 Illinois Public Library Annual Report (IPLAR) survey is now open. Each public library is required to submit the IPLAR 60 days after the library's fiscal year-end. Public libraries were sent an email on Jan. 3 that explains this year's new questions. Added by the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and the Public Libraries Survey (PLS), these new questions, provide more detailed reporting for the programming section including live virtual programming and age-specific group programming of all types.
As always, the instructions and survey itself are available on the Illinois State Library LibPAS Portal. Library directors will receive a reminder email 60 days before the report is due for each library. For more information, visit the Illinois State Library IPLAR webpage.
