As part of the QLDC public libraries review, our students were invited to answer to 3 questions:

  • What do you value the most about a library service?
  • What would encourage you to use the library more often?
  • What does the library look like in the future?

To the latter, the 107 students answers are (some students gave several answers):

  • More technology (includes more ebooks, more computers, more e-readers): 33
  • Bigger place: 16
  • More books: 12
  • More comfortable seats: 9
  • EBooks instead of books: 8
  • Same as today: 7
  • Movies: 4
  • Other (talking books, research facility, games): 3
  • Less popular: 2

That’s less than 5% seeing a future without books.
