Stars in the Sunshine State: Social Workers in Libraries
Florida’s libraries do amazing things. We take a look at some of their special projects and achievements on our Stars in the Sunshine State pages.
In our latest feature, social workers in libraries guide patrons to social services and provide a lifeline to basic needs.
Public Library Data Tables available
In 2018-2019, Florida's pubic libraries loaned more than 99.6 million items to more than 12.3 million borrowers.
Public library staff trained almost three million Floridians how to use computers and over 430,000 youth in internet safety.
Review these statistics and more on the 2018-2019 Public Library Statistics & Ranked Data Tables page.
We publish five years of these data tables on our Library Data and Statistics page.
