Library service helps children blossom

THE results of a survey to find out what children under the age of 16 think about their library service have been published.

Around 1,700 children’s, parents and carers took part in North Somerset Council’s survey last October, which found that 99 per cent of children thought the library was a friendly place, 60 per cent said it helped their literacy and 38 per cent said it helped them do better at school.

Councillor Felicity Baker, the council’s executive member responsible for libraries, said: “Already, more of certain books and other materials have been ordered as a result of comments made in the survey.”
