You’re looking at a static image of an interactive graphic (with more data) that you can access by either clicking the image or by clicking this link.
The chart provides a look at library’s Internet computers [personal computers (PCs) and laptops], whether purchased, leased, or donated, used by the general public in the library from 1998-2010.

The data comes from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) Public Libraries in the United States Survey.
Definitions for each data set can be accessed here.
