2021 Oregon Public Library Statistical Report Guide

Instructions for completing the annual Oregon Public Library Statistical Report.

907 Annual fee for non-resident patrons (household).

Part 9 - Salary survey (optional)

The following section for library salary ranges (Questions 950 - 959) is optional, however the Oregon library community often finds this information extremely helpful when determining local compensation and when negotiating a starting wage when hiring new staff.

Please report your library's hourly salary ranges (low and high) for the positions (or closest equivalent positions at your library) listed below, effective for the upcoming fiscal year. If a position has a fixed amount rather than a range, please enter the same amount for both high and low.

For salaried employees, approximate an hourly wage using the following formula:

Annual Salary ÷ Number of Weeks Paid Per Year ÷ Scheduled Hours Per Week = Hourly Equivalent.

EXAMPLE: Librarians are paid $50,000 per year to work 40 hours per week, with two weeks paid vacation. Their hourly equivalent pay would be ($50,000 ÷ 52 weeks) ÷ 40 hours/week = $24.04 (rounded to the nearest cent).

We realize your library might not have all the positions listed below, or it might have many, many more. We're attempting to make reporting this data as simple as possible while trying to capture the best snapshot of annual salary data statewide. Read through these basic position descriptions and align your library's positions to your best ability. If your library does not have an equivalent position listed, simply leave those fields blank: 

  • Director: the position responsible for managing the day-to-day operations of the library; in some areas this might also be designated Library Manager
  • Supervisory Librarian: a librarian position that supervises other library staff (e.g., Youth Services Manager; Public Services Manager, etc.), and usually requires a MLS/MLIS.
  • Non-supervisory Librarian: a librarian position that does not supervise other library staff, but usually requires a MLS/MLIS.
  • Library Assistant: this can include a number of positions with a range of assigned responsibilities, requiring some specialized training or experience, but not requiring a MLS/MLIS.
  • Library Clerk: this can also include a range of positions with assigned responsibilities that require little or no specialized training or experience (Library Page; Circulation Clerk, etc.).
