Aug 18, 2021 Results of *Early Literacy Activities Survey
Hussey Mayfield Memorial Public Library (HMMPL) recently conducted a follow-up survey to program participants to collect data and insights about how our early literacy services and programs are supporting community needs. The Project Outcome survey is the Public Library Association’s measurement tool for determining outcomes of program, services, and the impact they have on patrons.
Forty-one of you responded to our survey. Here are the results:
- 88% used what they learned to do something new or different with their children
- 79% spend more time doing what they learned with their child(ren)
- 87% used additional library resources
- 95% have a better understanding of the value of doing the activity(ies) they learned with their child(ren)
A Few Comments
- “we have been very pleased with current offerings along with the new addition of take home kits which have provided another avenue of playing and learning together and giving me ideas how to use everyday items around my house to create games, crafts, etc. for my children.”
- “More things outside I cannot bring him inside during COVID”
- “Have more selections of times, not just one.”
This is our first Project Outcome survey, and we are pleased to use it as a baseline for future improvement.
We appreciate your feedback! Please watch for and participate in future Project Outcome surveys through your Library.
*Our Early Literacy goals include the Every Child Ready to Read practices to promote reading readiness, which include reading, singing, playing, talking, and writing. Our early literacy librarian-experts strive to provide programs and services that encourage and model these practices.
