How Canadian Public Libraries Stack Up

This new report examines the economic, social and cultural impact of public libraries in Canada. As the current economic environment is impacting library budgets and library usage is increasing, libraries are in need of tools that help to demonstrate the value they offer to their communities. Information includes statistics on:

  • Libraries as providers of free services to the community such as Wi-Fi access, technology training and meeting rooms
  • Libraries as a resource for small businesses
  • Canadians receiving job-seeking help and career assistance at public libraries
  • The prevalence and scope of library activity in Canada
  • Comparisons of library activities to various retail and entertainment businesses

Wij zijn een samenwerkingsverband van bibliotheken over de hele wereld, dat sinds 1967 eigendom is van, bestuurd en onderhouden wordt door onze leden. Ons publieke doel is een toezegging aan elkaar—samen zorgen voor betere toegang tot de informatie in bibliotheken wereldwijd en manieren vinden om de kosten voor bibliotheken te reduceren door middel van samenwerking.
