The Association of Public Libraries of Quebec, which is behind this portrait, refuses to say which community is doing less well, saying it would like to
highlight the achievements.
The organization’s director, Eve Lagacé, indicates that in the Capitale-Nationale, only the libraries of the municipalities of La Malbaie and Sainte-Catherine-de-la-Jacques-Cartier have managed to achieve a score above 70%.
These results are defined by the average of the scores of five indicators.
The region is characterized in particular by poor work results.
Are we investing to have enough staff? Wunder, Eve Lagacé, Director General of the Library Association, without wanting to give the exact reasons.
She adds that recruiting documentation technicians and librarians is particularly difficult outside of Montreal.
” We do not evaluate the beauty of the place or the quality of the customer service, we evaluate the investments made by the municipalities to deliver the services. »
Ms. Lagacé ensures that missing investments are not always due to bad faith.
Sometimes we don’t know well enough the needs we have in a libraryShe says.
