Library usage in the Netherlands 2020, by type

The statistic displays the result of a survey question concerning library usage in the Netherlands in 2020, by type. As part of the survey, participants were asked which types of library they had used in the past year. The majority of respondents who had used a library had used public library services in the past 12 months. As of 2020, approximately 40 percent of respondents used either the central branch, regional branch or the returns and collection points of their public library. However, over half of respondents also indicated that they had not visited a library in the past 12 months.
