Tamworth’s Libraries to Take Part in Children’s Public Library User Survey

childrens libraryDuring the fortnight beginning Monday 17 February 2014 Staffordshire County Council is inviting Tamworth’s young library users to take part in a national survey.

The Children’s Public Library User Survey (PLUS) will be conducted in 14 libraries, 2 mobiles and 2 travelling library communities across the County and the libraries in Glascote and Wilnecote will be taking part.  The library staff will be asking children and young people, aged 7 to 16 years, to complete a simple questionnaire while they are in the library.

County Councillor Mike Lawrence, Cabinet Member for Children, Community & Localism, said, “This survey is an ideal opportunity for the county’s youngsters to tell us exactly what they think about their local Staffordshire library, to help us to make a great service even better.  The aim of the survey is to find out what children think and help to inform what libraries offer in the future.”

The questionnaire asks for information on how children use the library and their satisfaction with the service.  Library staff will be available to answer any queries and to give practical support if needed and the results will be used to improve service delivery, and to better understand our library users.

Please encourage your child to participate in the survey; it is an important opportunity for them to tell us what they think of the service Staffordshire County Council provides.  The survey period, Monday 17 February until Sunday 2 March in participating libraries during their opening hours, includes February half term week.

If there are any further queries about the survey, please do not hesitate to ask a member of the library staff and for more information about Staffordshire Libraries, please click here.
