What do young people think of libraries?
From 17th February to 2nd March 2014 the library service is going to be asking children and young people to complete a questionnaire for their age group that asks them what they think of the service that libraries provide for them.
Parents/carers will complete the form for children aged 0-7yrs. If older children are unable to complete a questionnaire themselves, their parents/carers or library staff can help them..
It is hoped that the library service will find out how children and young people currently use libraries and their satisfaction with core services and with the library overall
