Use of public library services by households in the United States, 1996 by Mary A Collins( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1996 National Household Education Survey (NHES:96), an ongoing national survey on important educational issues, included a series of questions about the use of public library services by members of United States households. Responses represent public library use by members of each household surveyed and not by individual persons within households. This report presents the findings for each of the items for all households. About 44% of the households included individuals who used public library services in the month prior to the interview and 65% of households used public library services in the past year. About one-third (35%) reported that no household members had used library services in the past year. Public library use was more common in households with children under 18 than in households without children. The most common way of using public library services in the past month was to go to a library to borrow or drop off books or tapes (36%). About half as many households (18%) reported visiting the library for other purposes, such as lecture or story hour or to use library equipment. The highest percentage of households who had used the library in the past month reported library use for enjoyment or hobbies, including borrowing books or tapes or attending activities (32%). Two other purposes were getting information for personal use, and using library services or materials for a school or class assignment. There is considerable variation among states in the percentage of households that used public library services in the past month and the past year. Also included in this report are the survey methodology and data reliability; response rates; nonsampling errors; and sampling errors. Five tables present survey results. (AEF)

Readiness for kindergarten : parent and teacher beliefs by Jerry West( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Opinions vary widely as to what young children should know or be capable of doing to be ready for kindergarten. This paper looks at the beliefs held by two groups who play critical roles in the early education of children: parents of preschoolers and kindergarten teachers. Two surveys that were sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education and were conducted in the spring of 1993 asked parents and teachers to rate several attributes and attitudes in terms of their importance to any child's readiness for kindergarten. Parents and teachers agreed that it was very important or essential that the children be able to communicate their needs and wants verbally, and that the children be enthusiastic and curious in approaching new activities. There was considerable disagreement on other characteristics, however. A majority of the parents believed that for a child to be ready to enter kindergarten, knowing the letters of the alphabet, being able to count to 20 or more, and being able to use pencils and paint brushes were very important or essential, whereas few kindergarten teachers shared these beliefs. Four tables and seven endnotes are included. Contains 16 references. (MDM)
