What Library Resource Are You? (A Personality Quiz)

What Library Resource Are You?

Books have the power to change lives, so imagine the potential a library has to transform a community. Besides providing free access to books, movies, music, video games, and toys, libraries also offer programs ranging from book clubs to computer literacy to concerts. At Pages Unbound, we love libraries and the work they do, so we asked several bloggers to share what they love about their libraries. Come back all July to help us celebrate libraries!

Instructions: To take the quiz, choose the best answer to each question. Write down the letter of the answer you pick for each question, or simply keep a running tally of how many of each letter you pick. After the last question, count the letters and see which you chose most often. Check the answers to see what type of library resource you are.

    Apparently, I couldn’t make up my mind whether I was book rentals or online resources – it was a tie! I guess that makes me ebooks?

    Just a quibble. Libraries aren’t free. Somebody’s paying for them. 🙂

    As for the quiz, I really didn’t fit into any category, especially since some questions didn’t have an answer that was even close to me. And who doesn’t have an ideal reading room that doesn’t include cats? That threw off the validity of the quiz for me right there.

      Well, for children they’re free, right? They don’t even pay taxes? 😉

      Yes, the hazards of taking a quiz where I completely make up the answers and results. Sorry! But I agree. There should definitely have been cats in this quiz.

    I am mostly a book discussion, and a little bit of online resources! Which makes sense because I love posting my discussion topics, and using social media to communicate with people. 😀 What a cute quiz!
