Our Research

Our research is central to our mission, driving our delivery of evidence-based programmes that empower people of all ages to read. Understanding how and why people read and the many benefits it brings to their lives helps achieve those goals. We undertake rigorous original and commissioned research, speaking to people across the UK to understand the successes and challenges they face and how reading and library use can make a real difference as a tool for social and personal change. Browse our latest research on the transformative power of reading and reports on how we are changing lives.
