As you know, we are in the midst of a multi-year study of the changing role of public libraries in the digital age. For our next report, we’re supplementing our usual nationally representative phone surveys with non-scientific, non-representative online surveys. These surveys help us draw out deeper, richer stories about the experiences of library users that can be used to illuminate the findings of our nationally representative surveys. If you check out or download e-books from your local public library, please take the survey below and tell us about your experiences!

The survey will be confidential and we will not share your identity, although your answers may be quoted anonymously in the report. The survey should take about 15 minutes.

[Update: This survey is now closed.]

And thanks!


P.S. Not an e-book borrower? We will also be doing broader surveys of public library patrons in general, as well as people (including non-library-users) who own e-readers or tablet computers. If you would like to be notified of any of our future questionnaires, please sign up here.
