[tweetmeme]About 2 weeks ago I put up a poll about your local library use.
Here are the results.

Do you use your local library?
67% Yes
33% No

If they answered yes, they were asked to complete the following questions.

How many books do you have checked out usually?
80% 1-3    20% 5-10

What types of books do you usually check out?
50% Fiction  50% Non-Fiction

What genre of books do you read?
Romance 22.22%
Thriller 22.22%
Humor 22.22%
Sci-Fi 11.11%
Self Help 11.11%
Other 11.11%

Do you find your own books, or request them online and have them waiting for you?
80% find their books on their own
20% request them and have them waiting
