Public Libraries

March 22, 2010

We found that Minnesota uses a complex, multilayered approach to deliver public library services, but local governments are primarily responsible for funding and administration. We also found wide variations in what local governments contribute financially to provide library services. We recommend a way to simplify the delivery structure but leave the funding disparity issue to local elected officials to resolve.
