New Survey Findings on Canadian Book-Reading Habits, Library Usage Published by BookNet Canada
From BookNet Canada:
Every winter, BookNet runs a survey to see how Canadians are spending their free time. We asked 750 people from across the country a few general questions about their favourite leisure activities, but the primary focus was on respondents’ book-reading and book-listening habits.
Of the 81% of respondents who said that they had read a book in the last year, we asked questions about library usage, book discoverability, favourite formats, and more!
Out of all Canadian book readers surveyed, 50% of them told us that they had also checked out a book (in any format: ebook, print, audio) from the library. This number is slightly higher than it was last year (46%).
