Much of part 1 is general library information that does not change, including some information that is locked from being changed. Should you have questions, referring back to your previous year's annual report may help.
This section is not hard, but we do have some libraries occasionally forget to answer their ballot information. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to your consultant.

If you have questions about this, your report from last year can usually help you answer the related questions. Please make sure it reflects any new ballot funding from the prior year (answered in last year's 1.47)
1.48 Contractual Agreement - Does the library have a contractual agreement ... to provide library services to an area not served by a chartered library? The vast majority of libraries will answer no to this. However, looking at your answer from last year may help you confirm that if needed.
1.49 Report of Unusual Circumstances. The pandemic drastically affected every library and their reported statistics. DLD does not want you to report Covid-19 as an unusual circumstance, answer this question regarding unusual circumstances OTHER than Covid-19. That could include heavy weeding, a fire, flood, etc. Libraries should add a note if services were impacted by circumstances in addition to Covid-19. (Updated 12/14/20)
