Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The purpose of this study was to determine factors which contribute to the usage of the Vinton Public Library by students in grades four through six in Vinton, Iowa. The 285 students were surveyed by means of a questionnaire. The results of this survey indicated that parents' use of the Vinton Public Library seemed to be an important factor in children's use of the Vinton Public Library; that children wanted to find books and materials for homework at the Vinton Public Library; that children appear to be less interested in AV materials for listening, and that there appears to be an opportunity for the librarian from the Vinton Public Library to initiate some community public relations to foster children's reading and to offer some in-school programming at the elementary level.
