Ever wonder how other teens in Toronto feel about the library and its services?
Hi we are Alex and Theresa, the Teen Advisors to the Toronto Public Library Board, and we want to tell you about the results of a survey we conducted last May asking teens across the city what they knew about library resources, and what new resources and services they wanted to see. Some of the results were pretty surprising: for instance, many of the teens surveyed did not know that they can access databases with all the information they need for school project or download free music and movies from Hoopla.
The survey highlights were presented to the Toronto Public Library Board at their September 2014 meeting.
So we started thinking –- Hey, if teens don’t know what the library has to offer, they don’t know what they are missing! Great stuff like: more database resources than you can get at school, downloadable movies and music, ebooks, and a diversity of reading temptations.
If you’re reading this blog post, you’re in the 36% of teens surveyed who know about the TPL Teens blog.
