Book Riot and EveryLibrary Plan Survey of Parent Attitudes Toward Libraries

Book Riot shared the following:

EveryLibrary, the national political action committee for libraries, and Book Riot, the largest independent editorial book site in North America, announce a partnership to launch a comprehensive survey aimed at gathering valuable insights from parents regarding their perceptions of public libraries and current issues facing public libraries. The ‘Parents and Public Libraries – Perceptions Survey’ will allow parents to share their experiences and opinions, contributing to improving and developing library services.

Scheduled to open on September 6, 2023, this collaborative survey is specifically designed to gather feedback from parents who have children under 18 in their households. EveryLibrary and Book Riot have worked closely to create a series of carefully crafted questions that address various aspects of public libraries, their services, and the challenges they face in meeting the diverse needs of communities. …

The survey will cover a wide range of topics, including parents’ frequency of library visits, their trust in librarians’ book selection, the importance of resources such as storytime opportunities and summer reading programs, and their awareness of book bans and censorship in libraries. Additionally, parents will be asked to express their opinions on controversial subjects in children’s books, such as LGBTQ+ characters and themes, racism, and social justice.
