Quebec Federation of Home and School Associations Library Survey
SCHOOL libraries in Québec continue to change. Staffing hours have been reduced, staff positions eliminated and library spaces renovated. How many of these changes are the result of digital learning, budget cuts and the need for classroom space? The QFHSA's Literacy Committee is looking for your help to get the scoop. If you can't answer all the questions please forward this to your volunteer library coordinator and/or your school librarian/technician. More than one survey may be submitted. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
