In case you haven’t heard about this recent Pew Report, let me do my part to make sure anyone who reads this blog is aware of it! (Because I think it’s important news for libraries!)
A Pew Research Center report released June 25 found that among those 16-29 years old, 75 percent had read at least one print book in the last year, versus just 25 percent who had read at least one e-book. They also think that libraries should coordinate more with local schools, offer free literacy programs, have more comfortable spaces, and a bunch of other stuff. They don’t seem to think libraries are a thing of the past.
