Methodology Share Share
Back to Top

The Library Scout ranking rigorously analyzes public data to help you find the best library near you. Our methodology takes into account several factors including the library's total funding relative to the population it serves, the number of paid full-time employees relative to the population it services, the number of electronic and physical items in circulation, the number of library visits, the number of library programs, and the number of computers available for public use.
