Page turner

Declining government support during the past five years can be entirely attributed to the recession. Rising unemployment and falling disposable income resulted in declining tax revenue for state and local governments, which necessitated budget cuts. Because many public libraries serve as the only source of free computers and wireless internet in their community, according to the American Library Association, funding is anticipated to rise as the economy recovers and tax revenue increases. Rising disposable income levels will also bolster consumer donations to libraries.

Industry establishments provide library or archiving services, maintaining collections of documents for informational, research, educational or recreational needs. Libraries store historical documents, photographs, maps, audio material and audiovisual material, and make them accessible to the public. This industry includes both public and private libraries, but excludes university libraries, corporate libraries and establishments that do not primarily provide library services.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
