YouGov poll finds high usage of public libraries in Great Britain

Graph showing percentage use of libraries

Source: YouGov

A survey conducted by YouGov found that 47% of those surveyed (in Great Britain) had used a public library in the last 12 months, excluding for formal education.  They also found that 51% have a current library card.

The additional results are broken down by sex, age, social grade, location, and voting preferences (by political parties). Within the table Wales is included with the Midlands so it’s difficult to know precisely how we compare to the rest of Great Britain, but it’s still an interesting snap-shot survey (of 2000 adults).
