Genealogists use of libraries

This post is inspired by a post Canadian Book Buyers and Their Relationship to Libraries on the Booknet Canada blog.

Asked how frequently Canadian book buyers visited a library a survey found that in the first quarter of 2012, 59.43% of book buyers claim to have visited the library within the last 12 months. Of those respondents, 19.4% visit the library, either in person or online, 2 to 3 times a month and 16.3% visited once a month.

I mention libraries as a genealogical resource often and would like to know how much they are used by genealogists and family historians. Please respond to this one item poll and include visits to libraries of all types, society, public, university, etc even if not all visits were for genealogical purposes.
