How are computers used at the library? We recently ran a survey on our website and asked you.
51% of respondents say that public access to computers and the Internet is important or very important to them, personally. 78% say it is important or very important to have these resources available for others in our community.
Our librarians make a difference! Of survey respondents who use the library’s public access technology, 53% got help from a librarian, library staff, or volunteer to use the library’s computers and Internet.
The beneficiaries of library Internet access often extend beyond the individual users; 37% of users found information or performed tasks for other people using the library’s computers or Internet connection.
Here’s a graph showing the breakdown of how computers in the Library have been used:
