Hobby Questions in Libraries – from Stephen’s Lighthouse

Posted by Editor on October 18, 2010

by Stephen Abrams here

Sorry for the delay! I was busy but here are the results from our little poll on what are the most popular questions public librarians get about hobbies today.


Are philately and numismatics still on top like they were when I was kid? (Hint: not by a long shot!)

Drum roll….

Here are the rankings for the most asked questions about hobbies from our elite group of librarian readers of Stephen’s Lighthouse and various other biblioblogs and Twitter feeds.

So, up next is an easier survey so watch for it. I want to find out what your hobbies are. Are librarians just like our users or do we have a unique set of hobbies that interest us? Coming soon.

(Thanks to Lori S. at Gale Cengage for the help on this survey)
