Library User Quiz

What kind of library user are you?

“Are you a “Library Lover”? An “Information Omnivore”? Or completely  “Off the Grid”?

The Pew Research Internet Project has created a library engagement quiz so users can learn how their library habits and attitudes stack up against the general population.

“The Library User Quiz is a condensed version of the questions asked in the Pew Research Internet Project’s nationally representative survey of 6,224 Americans ages 16 and older in September 2013.

You can learn more about the findings from that survey in the full library engagement typology report.” –Pew Research Internet Project
