Notes Regarding the Library District Geography

There are four types of tax-supported library districts in Missouri:
  1. consolidated,
  2. regional,
  3. county or city/county, and
  4. municipal.
As of the year 2003, the state has a total of 5 consolidated, 8 regional, 51 county or city/county, and 85 municipal tax-supported public libraries.

A state statute (adopted in 1965) sealed municipal library districts at their 1965 city boundaries IF a tax-supported county, regional, or consolidated public library existed within the county (or counties) where the town was located. This means standard town and county data from Census 2000 do not reflect accurate numbers for public library districts and makes providing census data by library district a customized job. For example, if there is a county library in a county of 50,000 people, and there is also a municipal library in the same county, the census blocks within the 1965 boundaries of the town would have to be identified and the population deducted from the county total to reflect an accurate count for both the county library district and the municipal library district. So the county library district population might be 42,521 instead of the county total of 50,000.

To accurately match library districts to Census 2000 data, the Missouri Census Data Center worked in conjunction with the Missouri State Library, local librarians, and in some cases, city planning departments and/or county government officials to determine the current geography of library districts. Note that in the case of regional libraries, the data are presented by districts within the region. Questions about library district data may be directed to Lindsay McCarroll, coordinator of the Missouri Census Data Center Program at the Missouri State Library (tel: 800-325-0131, ext. 10 in MO or 573-526-7648; e-mail address: lindsay.mccarroll@sos.mo.gov ).
